_inetsmtpmail With Username & Password Support

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I've been really really impressed with the functionality and ease of AI3. I have written many scripts that have helped automate tedious stuff. I noticed that the new beta has support for automatic emailing without use of an external emailer.

When I tried to use the INetSmtpMail function I found out it didn't support Username and Password. Every Smtp server I have ever used required a username and password. Is there some technical difficulty in including the login info in the function? I mean the people responsible for AI3 are incredible and I can't imagine there is much they can't do, but to not include this neccessary part for most smtp servers seems odd. That is what makes me think that there is a technical road block somewhere they can't get around. Would be great if someone could help them fix that function so most people could use it.

Oh, I did see the huge scripts written to overcome the password/username shortcommings but it would be nice if it was incorporated into INetSmtpMail. I mean my script is only 10 -15 lines long and to add that would seem a bit ugly.

you could try using _INetSmtpMailCom() posted in Scrips&Scraps ...

Yeah, that's the HUGE script I was talking about, I replaced it with 2 lines. They are clumsy and non transportable but they work.

Run("c:\Program Files\Netscape\Netscape\Netscp.exe -compose to=mytelenum@messaging.sprintpcs.com,subject=trips,body=beginning-" & $date & "-tripnum-" & $trips, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Send("^{ENTER}")
