Send Email - Very Simple

Recommended Posts

MadaraUchiha

Hello,

I like to send an email from my AutoIt script, and I like to have it as simple as possible.

I tried the example from the help file:

#include <Inet.au3>

Local $s_SmtpServer = "mysmtpserver.com.au"
Local $s_FromName = "My Name"
Local $s_FromAddress = "From eMail Address"
Local $s_ToAddress = "To eMail Address"
Local $s_Subject = "My Test UDF"
Local $as_Body[2]
$as_Body[0] = "Testing the new email udf"
$as_Body[1] = "Second Line"
Local $Response = _INetSmtpMail($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body)
Local $err = @error
If $Response = 1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Success!", "Mail sent")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Error!", "Mail failed with error code " & $err)
EndIf

It returns me: Mail failed with error code 50. 

Why is that?

Helpfile tells me about this:

 

@error: 1 - Invalid Parameters   2 - Unable to start TCP   3 - Unable to resolve IP   4 - Unable to create socket   5x - Cannot open SMTP session. x indicates the index number of last command issued to the SMTP server.   50x - Cannot send body. x indicates the line number of $as_Body (first line is 0).   5000 - Cannot close SMTP session

 

Where is my error? My credentials and email adress are correct (already checked that twice).

I know there are some large UDF's out there about email sending, but I like to have it as short/simple as possible, so I can understand it properly.

What's wrong with that code?

_INetSMTPMail has a trace flag. Maybe you get better debugging information?

I had a similar issue, try this.

Local $Response = _INetSmtpMail($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body, @ComputerName, -1)

Does your SMTP mail server require you to use a username and password? If it does, then that function will not work for you.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

This doesnt work for me:s

I have a gmail address.

I already have the big email UDF from Jos: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

Its working fine.

But I like to make the email code very simple and clear to understand.

So I am looking for a short and qasy to understand solution.

_InetSmtpMail() doesn't work.

Are there other options?:)

You already linked your only option.

I'm not sure why you think it's not simple to use, it's a single function, and all you have to do is supply it with the right information. Do you have any understanding of what _INetSMTPMail is doing? Yet you're willing to try and make that work (which it won't for what you want) but not willing to use a function that does work?

I used the above code and receive the message that it was successful and mail was sent. Though I never receive an email. Any reason for this? could it be a firewall issue? If so how would I be able to find out?

Hi Jos,

I tried your code with my google account and $server = "smtp.google.com"

Func _INetSmtpMailCom($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject = "", $s_Username = "", $s_Password = "", $IPPort = 465, $ssl = 1)

And i get an error:

Description:The transport failed to connect to the server.

Is it because i am behind a automatic proxy configuration script? Or maybe smtp traffic is disabled?  How can i check that?

I tried

telnet smtp.google.com 465

and it diesnt work.

      Good morning everyone, I thought I had already solved this issue but it turns out I did not. 
      My code finds unread emails with this specific subject line of "request" but when I change the subject to SKIPPED + "request" = ("SKIPPED request") the program still finds the email and tries to process it. I only want to process emails with the exact match subject of "request".
      Here is my code that "finds" the unread emails with the subject of "request" or so I thought. 
      Func ListUnreadEmails() ;******************************************************************************* ; Lists all unread E-mails from the folder Outlook-UDF-Test ;******************************************************************************* ; Stores all the unRead emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Displays the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Gets the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) EndFunc It acts as if any part of the subject containing the word "request" and the email is unread that it will try to process it. (I think)

      Send("D:\javaapplication\javaapplication\Hello.jar{Enter}")
      WinActivate("Penjumlahan")

      Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 
      I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 
      Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:
      Func ChangeEmailStatus() ;******************************************************************************* ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read ;******************************************************************************* Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows) _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True") MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0]) MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0]) Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows) EndFunc
