Send Email From VB6
Posted on 2008-11-05
How can I send a standard SMTP email message (no attachments) from a VB6 application?
* Cannot use any third part solutions (ActiveX, DLLs etc.). A native VB6 email function library would be OK though.
* Must be native to VB6.
* Must work on Windows 2003 servers and Windows XP.
I have scoured many Google listed sights and have not found anything that meets the about criteria yet.
Perhaps I can use the MAPI controls, but I just need to send a simple email (not explicitly interfacing to an Exchange server).
I have a DOS tool that uses mailsend.exe from muquit.com. It only requires the SMTP server IP and email address. I was hoping for a native VB6 solution that would be this easy in VB6 too but not sure what the code would look like.
