Emailing with AutoIT3

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to AutoIT with JMail to email my co-workers and I after a particular task has been completed. I was able to get JMail to work with Kixtart but wasn't able to get it to work with AutoIT, I'm sure it's my fault since I'm not familiar with AutoIT. Any sample codes for this or another other free email program would be greatly appreciated.

There have been a couple of discussion of this recently with working code posted. I'd suggest you search the forums while you wait for someone else to respond who may have specific pointers.


Free Internet Tools: DebugBar, AutoIt IE Builder, HTTP UDF, MODIV2, IE Developer Toolbar, IEDocMon, Fiddler, HTML Validator, WGet, curl

MSDN docs: InternetExplorer Object, Document Object, Overviews and Tutorials, DHTML Objects, DHTML Events, WinHttpRequest, XmlHttpRequest, Cross-Frame Scripting, Office object model

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Here's an example that uses COM functionality (requires autoit beta)

; Global Settings
$smtpserver = "";smtp server address (i.e. mail.server.com)
$smtpuser = "";smtp username (i.e. john_doe)
$smtppass = "";smtp password (i.e. my_s3cret_P@$$)

Func SendEmail($e_Sender, $e_Recipient, $e_Subject, $e_Text)
    $objMessage = ObjCreate ("CDO.Message")
    With $objMessage
        .Subject = $e_Subject
        .Sender = $e_Sender
        .From = $e_Sender
        .To = $e_Recipient
        .TextBody = $e_text
    ;.AddAttachment ("") ;Needs FULL path!!!
    With $objMessage.Configuration.Fields
        .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
        .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = $smtpserver
        .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
        .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = $smtpuser
        .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = $smtppass
        .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
        .Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60
EndFunc  ;==>SendEmail

;;Error handler functions in case there was an error with email
Dim $oMyError = ObjEvent ("AutoIt.Error", "ErrorHandler")
Func ErrorHandler()
    $HexNumber = Hex($oMyError.number, 8)
    MsgBox(0, "", "We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
            "err.description is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.description & @CRLF & _
            "err.windescription:" & @TAB & $oMyError.windescription & @CRLF & _
            "err.number is: " & @TAB & $HexNumber & @CRLF & _
            "err.lastdllerror is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.lastdllerror & @CRLF & _
            "err.scriptline is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.scriptline & @CRLF & _
            "err.source is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.source & @CRLF & _
            "err.helpfile is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.helpfile & @CRLF & _
            "err.helpcontext is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.helpcontext _
    SetError(1); to check for after this function returns
EndFunc  ;==>ErrorHandler
