Send() Issues help please

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a program that I am writing to help me automate the task of sending emails using hotmail to my clients.

The emails that I send vary and I have saved a text file that has the email inside it. My application reads from the file and types it into the boxes.

If the text document has breaks in a line, it screws autoit up and apparently was actually sending the {RETURN} key?

It will not send any keys that has line breaks in it.

Here is my script:

$oIE = _IEAttach ("Untitled Message")
    $oToBox = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "divTo")
    $oSubjectBox = _IEGetObjById ($oIE , "txtSubj")
    $oBodyBox = _IEGetObjById ( $oIE, "divBdy")
    WinActivate("Message")
    WinWaitActive("Message") ;Function to activate the new message textbox
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    _IEAction($oToBox, "click")
    Send("chipsanddip12@yahoo.com",1)
    Send ("{ENTER}",0)
    Send ("{TAB}", 0)
    Send ("{TAB}", 0)
    Send ("This is a sample email",1)
    Send ("{TAB}", 0)
    Send ($dob , 0)

func loadPastes()
    $File = FileOpen("cop.txt", 0) ;Functions used to read input from a file and store it in a textbox
    $dob = FileRead($File)
    FileClose($File)
    MsgBox(0, "Loaded successfully", "Copy and Pastes loaded!")
EndFunc

Welcome to the forums!

I don't have a Hotmail account to test (dirty!) but on a hunch, try this:

$oIE = _IEAttach ("Untitled Message")
$oToBox = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "divTo")
$oSubjectBox = _IEGetObjById ($oIE , "txtSubj")
$oBodyBox = _IEGetObjById ( $oIE, "divBdy")
$oToBox.Value = "chipsanddip12@yahoo.com"
$oSubjectBox.Value = "This is a sample email"
$oBodyBox.Value = $dob

If you have to send a lot of emails, I would heavily consider setting up your Hotmail account in an email client (like Microsoft Outlook) where you can control the sending of emails a lot more reliably... Trying to script the sending of emails via a web-based email system is just plain janky.

Either that or get a GMail account, at which point you can use this to send directly from AutoIt without needing to use a web interface at all: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=23860

Thanks I've got it working now.

Also thanks for the alternate way of sending the emails, however due to restrictions in my workplace this is the only way I can solve the issue.

I am using this is a 'helper' tool for my job.
