e-mail and mail servers

4 posts in this topic

hi everyone bit of a noob question but why when i try to use the _INetSmtpMail function do i always get 'unable to connect to server response

#include <INet.au3>

$s_SmtpServer = "mysmtpserver.com.au"

$s_FromName = "My Name"

$s_FromAddress = "From eMail Address"

$s_ToAddress = "To eMail Address"

$s_Subject = "My Test UDF"

Dim $as_Body[2]

$as_Body[0] = "Testing the new email udf"

$as_Body[1] = "Second Line"

$Response = _INetSmtpMail ($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body)

$err = @error

If $Response = 1 Then

MsgBox(0, "Success!", "Mail sent")

Else

MsgBox(0, "Error!", "Mail failed with error code " & $err)

EndIf

i suspect that i need to be running my own mail server on my computer, how do you guys do it, is there a server out there

that allows you to use it for testing?

No you don't.

All you would need to know for that to work is your ISP. And yours is?

Search for an open SMTP relay (rare due to obvious abuse), install your own SMTP server... or check the settings from your standard Email provder (ISP, Webmail), in the FAQ there's usually a passage about SMTP and POP3 settings...

1.) make use of the optional parameters $s_helo, and $s_first, set the 2nd one to -1

2.) try blat.exe to see, if it can do SMTP to that server successfully.

Included with BLAT.EXE package is a BLAT.DLL (iirc), that one (with fileinstall() func) is how I coded to send email from autoit, before _INetSmtpMail() was improved quite a time ago.
