SMTP MAILER by Jos (INI Error/Bug)

3 posts in this topic

Quick question,
 
Can anyone explain why this does not work:

Global $SmtpServer = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "SmtpServer", Default)        ; address for the smtp-server to use - REQUIRED
Global $FromName = "MIERT: " & "Computer = " & @ComputerName & "Logon Name = " & @UserName        ; name from who the email was sent
Global $FromAddress = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "FromAddress", Default)     ; address from where the mail should come
Global $ToAddress = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "ToAddress", Default)           ; destination address of the email - REQUIRED
Global $Subject = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "Subject", Default)            ; subject from the email - can be anything you want it to be
Global $Body                                                                      ; the messagebody from the mail - can be left blank but then you get a blank mail
Global $AttachFiles = @ScriptDir & IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "AttachFiles", Default)    ; the file(s) you want to attach seperated with a ; (Semicolon) - leave blank if not needed
Global $CcAddress = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "CcAddress", Default)         ; address for cc - leave blank if not needed
Global $BccAddress = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "BccAddress", Default)        ; address for bcc - leave blank if not needed
Global $Importance = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "Importance", Default)      ; Send message priority: "High", "Normal", "Low"
Global $Username = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "Username", Default)          ; username for the account used from where the mail gets sent - REQUIRED
Global $Password = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "Password", Default)          ; password for the account used from where the mail gets sent - REQUIRED
Global $IPPort = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "IPPort", Default)              ; port used for sending the mail
Global $ssl = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "ssl", Default)                    ; enables/disables secure socket layer sending - put to 1 if using httpS
If I hardcode the data into the script it works as in the OPs example:
$SmtpServer = "MailServer"              ; address for the smtp-server to use - REQUIRED
$FromName = "Name"                      ; name from who the email was sent
$FromAddress = "your@Email.Address.com" ; address from where the mail should come
$ToAddress = "your@Email.Address.com"   ; destination address of the email - REQUIRED
$Subject = "Userinfo"                   ; subject from the email - can be anything you want it to be
$Body = ""                              ; the messagebody from the mail - can be left blank but then you get a blank mail
$AttachFiles = ""                       ; the file(s) you want to attach seperated with a ; (Semicolon) - leave blank if not needed
$CcAddress = "CCadress1@test.com"       ; address for cc - leave blank if not needed
$BccAddress = "BCCadress1@test.com"     ; address for bcc - leave blank if not needed
$Importance = "Normal"                  ; Send message priority: "High", "Normal", "Low"
$Username = "******"                    ; username for the account used from where the mail gets sent - REQUIRED
$Password = "********"                  ; password for the account used from where the mail gets sent - REQUIRED
$IPPort = 25                            ; port used for sending the mail
$ssl = 0                                ; enables/disables secure socket layer sending - put to 1 if using httpS
But if I try to read the data from an Ini file it is unable to connect to the server.
 
Again, the EXACT same data in the ini file hardcoded into the script works, but read from an ini does not...
 
any ideas?

Try making the numeric fields really numeric:

 

Global $IPPort = number(IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "IPPort", Default))              ; port used for sending the mail
Global $ssl = Number(IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Ctrl.ini", "emailinfo", "ssl", Default))                    ; enables/disables secure socket layer sending - put to 1 if using httpS

I just figured this out and came to close this thread, thank you though for the speedy reply. While I have the thread open, is there anyway to read these from a ini? I need to have all of my variables stored in an ini for quick editing.
