Posting eMail w/o MAPI?

P: n/a
I've got a little app for managing high school reunions and I've been going
through MAPI - but it's kind of a nuisance having to deal with OutLook and all
that. Seems like there SB some way to just *send* that message - directly from
the app to the email server.

Is there any hope my my finding some code or an object to do that? Or am I
fighting nature...

If you're using Windows 2000 or XP you can use the CDOSys library to send mail
without invoking any Outlook stuff (or even needing Outlook installed). I use
this for all messages that I don't need to display on-screen prior to sending.

I wrote an application that uses a third party tool called Codestone.
With this I send/receive mail directly from SMTP/POP server. Took a bit
of coding but has been in production for over 4 years now with no issues.

If interested I could share some code although it is specific to this
control. Also the control must be installed on each computer to
send/receive email.
