smtp emailing - aspemail, vsemail, other dlls...

This raises various issues:

1. Using hardcoded into the app is risky as,
because of spam, is unlikely to allow that to continue

2. btinternet has merged with yahoo, so may cease to exist altogether

Therefore, what alternatives to using aspemail?

I know that some people use vsemail (indy project), but it comes as a

password issue?

Any other suggestions
