Hi all,

I have some html code in a TMemo and I'd like to send a HTML email using the HTML code from the TMemo or save it to html and then send it .. or something like that anyway.

Thanks

So you need e-mail client in Delphi. Try ICS suite from http://www.overbyte.be/frame_index.html. TSMTPCli component there is able to send HTML e-mails.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

See sample code
uses
  OverbyteIcsWndControl
, OverbyteIcsSmtpProt;

    SmtpClient: THtmlSmtpCli;
    procedure SmtpClientRequestDone(Sender: TObject; RqType: TSmtpRequest;
      ErrorCode: Word);

procedure TMail.SmtpClientRequestDone(Sender: TObject;
  RqType: TSmtpRequest; ErrorCode: Word);
begin
// all dirty job here
  if ErrorCode <> 0 then
  begin
// code for error
    Exit;
  end;
  case RqType of
    smtpConnect:  if SmtpClient.AuthType = smtpAuthNone then
                      SmtpClient.Helo
                   else
                      SmtpClient.Ehlo;
    smtpHelo:     SmtpClient.MailFrom;
    smtpEhlo:     SmtpClient.Auth;
    smtpAuth:     SmtpClient.MailFrom;
    smtpMailFrom: SmtpClient.RcptTo;
    smtpRcptTo:   SmtpClient.Data;
    smtpData:     SmtpClient.Quit;
    smtpQuit:     Terminate;
  end;
end;

procedure TMail.SendE_Mail;
begin
// fill required fields
  with SmtpClient do
  begin
    OnRequestDone  := SmtpClientRequestDone;
    HtmlCharSet    :='windows-1252';
    Host           := smtpHost;
    Port           := 'smtp';
    SignOn         := Karol;
    FromName       := Emil;
    HdrFrom        := FromName;
    HdrTo          := Rec;
    HdrCC          := '';
    HdrSubject     :='Subject';
    AuthType       := smtpA;
    Username       := smtpUser;
    Password       := smtpPasswd;
    HdrPriority    := smtpPriorityNone;
    ConfirmReceipt := false;
    ContentType    := smtpHtml;
    RcptName.Clear;
    RcptNameAdd(HdrTo, '', '');
    HtmlText := TMemo1.Lines;
// then
    Connect;
  end;
end;

It's in the Author's question part:
function SendReport(ServerName, FromEmail, FriendlyName, ToEmail, Subject, Info: string): Boolean;
var
 htmpart, txtpart: TIdText;
 Email: TIdMessage;
 html: TStrings;
 IdSMTP: TIdSMTP;
begin
 Email := TIdMessage.Create(nil);
 html := TStringList.Create();
 IdSMTP := TIdSMTP.Create(nil);

 HTML.Add(Info);
 IdSMTP.Host := ServerName;

 email.ReplyTo.EMailAddresses := FromEmail;
 email.From.Text := FriendlyName;
 email.Recipients.EMailAddresses := ToEmail;
 email.Subject := Subject;
 email.ContentType := 'multipart/mixed';
 email.Body.Assign(html);
 
 txtpart := TIdText.Create(email.MessageParts, html);
 txtpart.ContentType := 'text/plain';
 txtpart.Body.Text := 'This is a html email';
 htmpart := TIdText.Create(email.MessageParts, html);
 htmpart.ContentType := 'text/html';
 { Now send it }
 try
  idSMTP.Connect();
  try
   idSMTP.Send(email);
  except on E: Exception do
    begin
     result := false;
    end;
  end;
 finally
  idSMTP.Disconnect();
 end;
 html.Free();
 htmpart.Free;
 txtpart.Free;
 Email.Free;
 IdSMTP.Free;
end;
