Ok, so let's agree to disagree here. ;) 
I am fine with they it is and it compares easily now with the zillion examples out there that are coded in the way I have done it. :)

I know it's late, but anyway here it is:

$objEmail.Fields("urn:schemas:mailheader:x-mailer") = "My application Name or whatever else"

 

and here is the way how to set "code page" (here Czech) :

this is important when you have chars with diacritics (special non-english letters) in your email

$objEmail.BodyPart.ContentTransferEncoding = "8bit"
$objEmail.BodyPart.CharSet = "windows-1250"

 

Good info! Thanks for that and I have added this to the First post to share. :)

In my scripts I use this another parameter:

$objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/developer/exchange-server-2003/ms873043(v=exchg.65)

Quote

The number of seconds that can elapse without a response from the SMTP service before the connection attempt is aborted.

 

So here I share this for you as another possible tip ...

Thanks...... Have you ever had the need to extent the timer from the default 30 seconds to 60?

As per DOCS 30s is default only when Outlook Express is installed.

By this setting I tried to set smaller timeout than observed (bigger) real time/timeout when problems in connection to SMTP server.

You can change this value to smaller one.

This code is only as tip that such option is available ...

Nah ...   it states that 30 secs is the default, unless OE is installed at which time the timeout of OE is used:

The default value for this field is 30 seconds.
If Microsoft Outlook Express is installed, then the value from the default account is used.

I know and do appreciate the sharing of this kind of information and honestly was just curious whether you have had any issues with that 30 sec timeout which made you have to add this option. ;)

But I have a minor issue, can I use unicode characters in the sender name? I tried it but all I see is question marks in the received email.

Try adding this in your code to convert the name to utf-8 encoded base64:

$s_FromName = "Jos ąćę"                      ; name from who the email was sent
$s_Fromname = "=?utf-8?B?" & _Base64Encode(BinaryToString(StringToBinary($s_FromName,4),1)) & '?='


Func _Base64Encode($vInput)
    Local Const $CRYPT_STRING_BASE64 = 0x00000001
    Local Const $CRYPT_STRING_NOCRLF = 0x40000000

    $vInput = Binary($vInput)
    Local $tInput = DllStructCreate("byte[" & BinaryLen($vInput) & "]")
    DllStructSetData($tInput, 1, $vInput)

    Local $aCall = DllCall("Crypt32.dll", "bool", "CryptBinaryToStringA", _
            "struct*", $tInput, _
            "dword", DllStructGetSize($tInput), _
            "dword", $CRYPT_STRING_BASE64 + $CRYPT_STRING_NOCRLF , _
            "ptr", 0, _
            "dword*", 0)
    If @error Or Not $aCall[0] Then Return SetError(1, 0, "") ; error calculating the length of the needed buffer

    Local $tOut = DllStructCreate("char[" & $aCall[5] & "]")

    $aCall = DllCall("Crypt32.dll", "int", "CryptBinaryToStringA", _
            "struct*", $tInput, _
            "dword", DllStructGetSize($tInput), _
            "dword", $CRYPT_STRING_BASE64 + $CRYPT_STRING_NOCRLF, _
            "struct*", $tOut, _
            "dword*", DllStructGetSize($tOut))
    If @error Or Not $aCall[0] Then Return SetError(2, 0, ""); error encoding

    Return DllStructGetData($tOut, 1)
EndFunc

This seems to working for me.... maybe there is an other/simpler way, but this worked for me. :)

Would the same technique also work for the message body?

Just add the 2 lines to the original UDF:

If StringInStr($as_Body, "<") And StringInStr($as_Body, ">") Then
        $objEmail.HTMLBody = $as_Body
        $objEmail.HTMLBodyPart.CharSet = "UTF-8"
    Else
        $objEmail.Textbody = $as_Body & @CRLF
        $objEmail.TextBodyPart.CharSet = "UTF-8"
    EndIf

Agree, but first needs to be properly tested to see if everything keeps working and I haven't done that yet. 
So ...  input/feedback is welcome before doing so! :) 

My preference is to do this without adding an option and just default to these changes when they work also for regular text/names.

Same! It should be okay because UTF-8 is backward compatible with ASCII (which is what I think Windows is defaulting to).
