SMTP mailer - have copy in sent folder on server? Port refusal.

12 posts in this topic

This may be a dumb question but ...

I am currently using the ">Smtp Mailer That Supports Html And Attachments" by Jos (thank you Jos - cool script) to send emails from my script.  I am trying to ensure that a copy of the sent email gets saved to the server so you can see it in the sent folder.   I am using an account hosted by 1and1 for the email but am not on their Exchange server.  A copy does get saved to the sent folder when I do it from my phone.  The phone uses SSL (as does the script).  The only difference (and I assume it is important) is  the phone uses port 587 for SMTP.  This port is refused by the script which, as a result, uses 465 instead to send.   Is there any way to use that port 587 from the script?  Alternatively, is  there something else I should be doing?

Any help would be appreciated.

Happy holidays,

JFish

Are you marking ssl as true?

I have

$ssl=1

Which I thought meant to use it.  Should it literally say "true"?

Edit: "true" does not work either :-( 

"Error Code 2: Description: The transport failed to connect to the server" - is what I get when I use port 587

Your phone APP makes the copy into the SendItems, like Outlook does in Windows.

The actual SMTP sending of the email via your gmail account only send the it.

@Jos - thanks for the clarification on that.  Is there anywhere I can look to figure out how to make a copy into the SendItems so I can see it on in my webmail client OR does that require the use of a local client to send the message - meaning it is not possible from the script (which was suggested on another forum when I Googled "CDO.Message" and "SendItems")?

I am not aware but haven't researched it. You could always CC or BCC yourself so you have a copy in your inbox.

@Jos -  Yes, I have been using the BCC.  It is an application for my wife for her business.  I should have said "don't delete those"  because of course she did so I was just looking for an easy way to save them.  I think I may create another mailbox and BCC that one also for a comprehensive set of emails as a work around.

Try this.

Just wondering: How would that help creating an entry of the send messages in your Send Items folder or did I miss something?

@mLipok -

I may be mistaken but that appears to keep a copy of the email as a file locally.  Is that right?  If so, while useful, it is not really what I was looking for.  I was trying to find a way to store it back to the email account on the SMTP server so that it could be accessed from anywhere (as in what happens when you use your phone to send email).

      Is there any way to launch an application once I receive an email.
      I have an executable created in autoit and I am running it regularly on daily basis using task scheduler on windows.
      And sometimes I am running it again manually if someone asks to.
      Is there anyway to configure an email so that when I send a mail to that particular email ID then it should launch that exe directly?

      i am trying to figure out how a server can connect to a client Over the internet. 
      In this is script. The client connects to the server on the same machine (localhost) and executes the commands from the client.
      How can I change that instead communicating over localhost to communicate over the internet with tcp ipaddress and a port.
       
      What i actually need help of is
      1. The server will open a port and  listen to communication from a No-ip address
      2. I input the no-ip address and correct port in the client side, and when i click on connect, it connects to the server if its online

      I've ported these two functions from PHP to AU3 to work with URLs.
      Made them for those who work with libraries like HTTP.au3 (not the one I coded), that needs passing the server domain, path, etc., instead of the full URL.
      Grab the lib here.
      ParseURL( $sURL )
      Parses the URL and splits it into defined parts. Returns an array:
      [0] = Full URL (same as $sURL) [1] = Protocol (i.e.: http, https, ftp, ws...) [2] = Domain [3] = Port (or null if not specified) [4] = Path (or null if not specified) [5] = Query string (everything after the ? - or null if not specified) Example:
      $aExample = ParseURL("https://google.com:8080/?name=doe") MsgBox(0, "Test", "URL: " & $aExample[0] & @CRLF & _ "Protocol: " & $aExample[1] & @CRLF & _ "Domain: " & $aExample[2] & @CRLF & _ "Port: " & $aExample[3] & @CRLF & _ "Path: " & $aExample[4] & @CRLF & _ "Query string: " & $aExample[5])  
      ParseStr( $sStr )
      Parses a query string (similar to the [5] of the previous function) and returns a multidimensional array, where:
      [0][0] = number of variables found [0][1] = ununsed [1][0] = key name of the first variable [1][1] = first variable value (already URL decoded) [n][0] = key name of the nth variable [n][1] = nth variable value (already URL decoded) Example:
      include <Array.au3> ; need only to do _ArrayDisplay, not needed by the lib _ArrayDisplay(ParseStr("foo=bar&test=lol%20123")) #cs Result is: [0][0] = 2 [0][1] = ununsed [1][0] = foo [1][1] = bar [2][0] = test [2][1] = lol 123 #ce Feel free to fork!

      Hi! I want to send by mail some files with a certain extension (.xml in my case). These files are located in the script folder. First, I thought to use _FileListToArrayRec function to have a list of these files. But than I don't know how to send them all at once. I know that I can attach multiple files in this way: path1;path2;path3; etc.  and so I have tried to make a string of this type with the path of the files (with a for loop) but It doesn't attach any file (only instructions.txt). How could I do? ( what I did is just an idea, if there's something better that would be great) Thanks!
      $aArrayXml = _FileListToArrayRec(@ScriptDir, "*.xml", $FLTAR_FILES) _ArrayDisplay($aArrayXml, "LIST XML") $LenghtArrayXml = UBound($aArrayXml) If ($LenghtArrayXml > 2) Then For $i = 2 To $LenghtArrayXml - 1 $temp = "&@ScriptDir&""\"&$aArrayXml[$i]&";"&"""" $XmlListFile = $XmlListFile & $temp Next EndIf $XmlListFile = StringTrimLeft($XmlListFile, 1) if($LenghtArrayXml = 2)Then $rc =_INetSmtpMailCom($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body, @ScriptDir&"\"&$aArrayXml[1]&";"&@ScriptDir&"\instructions.txt", $s_CcAddress, $s_BccAddress, $s_Username, $s_Password, $IPPort, $ssl) Else $rc = _INetSmtpMailCom($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body, @ScriptDir&"\"&$aArrayXml[1]&$XmlListFile&@ScriptDir&"\instructions.txt", $s_CcAddress, $s_BccAddress, $s_Username, $s_Password, $IPPort, $ssl) EndIf

      Purpose of script: To send emails in Outlook based on data in an excel spreadsheet. From: fields are entered for purposes of sending on behalf of (delegate), copies A2 cell from excel for To: field, Subject field is a static value and entered, returns to excel spreadsheet to read A1 and copy the first name and insert into the body of a template at an insertion point. The From, and the body of the email change based on region, so currently I have 6 different scripts that do essentially the same thing with some minor changes and want to consolidate into one script to save time.
      Question:
      To expedite the process of this and cut down on the amount of scripts, 6 in total I use daily, is it possible for me to somehow add the region to column C in excel, have autoit read column C values per row, and then decide which function, within a master script, to execute and loop this until there is no value in column C field?
      Example spreadsheet:
      Rob | rob@annuity.com |Midwest
      Annie | annie@agency.com | Midwest
      Kyle | kyle@agency.com | MidAtlantic
      Rick | rick@megasales.com | MidAtlantic
      Blank | Blank | Blank |
      Example execution:
      Run Birthday.au3, execute loop part through hotkey
      Reads row 1, C1, value is Midwest, calls Midwest(), script runs as Midwest Birthday.au3 does currently
      Reads row 2, C2, value is Midwest, calls Midwest(), script runs as Midwest Birthday.au3 does currently
      Reads row 3, C3, value is MidAtlantic, calls MidAtlantic(), script runs as MidAtlantic Birthday.au3 currently
      Reads row 4, C4, value is MidAtlantic, calls MidAtlantic(), script runs as MidAtlantic Birthday.au3 currently
      Reads row 5, C5, value is null or blank, ends script through Exit
       
      Everything I have coded in my time in AutoIt has been based mostly on mouse based movements and I don't have variable programming knowledge so I feel like I'm close to understanding how to do this, but the reading/storing variables part is beyond my current skill set. Help is appreciated.
      Mail Merges don't work as delegated in Outlook 07, for those that might be questioning why I just don't do that.
