.NET winform application. email function is pointed to the SMTP server of Linux. But it showns "Pickup" folder is not existed.

Dear All,
Now I just finished my winform application. And a part of that is to
send email reminder to the users. It's working fine in the server that with
SMTP service in Windows 2003.

But now the user wants to used the Linux server to send email messages.
(already installed the SMTP service in that). Unfortunatelly one error shown
after the sending funciton invoked.

It shows "Pickup directory is not existed,x,x,x,, "

It's well known that in SMTP service of windows system. There are
several folders in the C:\Inetpub\Mail Root, "Picker,BadMail ,Queue,etc.".
When one email message is created. It would first to into "Pickup" folder.
And then changes to "Queue" folder. And then sent out.

But seems Linux system didn't has those folder or the architecture is
not same as windows system. So it prompts errors.

Should I goto change the email function and didn't use the CDO object to
send emails? Change to used Jmail to send messages? Is this a solution for
me?

Let me describe this one again.

CDO + Email Function + SMTP Service (Windows 2003) <--Successed
CDO + Email Function + SMTP Service (Linux System) <--Failed

The program is still runs on the Windows 2003 system. Only changed SMTP
Server's content that in the configuration file to Linux System.
(mail.abc.com)

So, Can you give me any suggestion about this issue?

Dear All,

The following is the source code snippet. Please review it.

using CDO;
using Message = CDO.Message;

Message oMsg = new Message();

oMsg.From = SendEmailAddres s;
oMsg.To = userEmail;
oMsg.Subject = "Prospect Reminder";
oMsg.HTMLBody = EmailContent.To String();
oMsg.TextBody = EmailContent.To String();

oFields["http://schemas.microso ft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing"].Value
= 1;
oFields["http://schemas.microso ft.com/cdo/configuration/sendemailaddres s"].Value
= SendEmailAddres s; //sender mail
oFields["http://schemas.microso ft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpaccountname "].Value
= SendAccountName ; //email account
oFields["http://schemas.microso ft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername"].Value

oFields["http://schemas.microso ft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword"].Value

oFields["http://schemas.microso ft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticat e"].Value
= SendAuthenticat ion;
//value=0 Anonymous
//value=1 Basic£¨basic (clear-text) authentication.
//The configuration sendusername/sendpassword or
postusername/postpassword fields are used to specify credentials.£©

= 0x0804;
oFields["http://schemas.microso ft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver"].Value

oFields.Update( );

oMsg.Send();
oMsg = null;

I am using MailMessage (CDOSYS) to send emails. I would like to turn off the SMTP service (it's on the local machine) and look at the emails in the pickup folder before they get sent out. However, since it is connecting using the port, I will get an error if I turn off the SMTP service. I need to configure it so that it writes the emails to the pickup folder. I've done quite a bit of digging, and found some references to...

Hi: I have a problem when sending large email(more than 20Mb) from a web page. I got timeout error. How to overcome this problem? I am thinking to have a thread to send email. Once the thread starts, return response to client immediately. The client should be able to kee checking if the thread is finished. If it's finished, return back a value. I don't know whether it works or not. Any idea, please. Thanks, Dennis

I need to send 1000 emails from an asp.net website. Normally I would use System.Web.Mail.MailMessage() to send thru an SMTP server. But the large amount of emails results in a timeout. My server administrator told me to write the emails to the “pickup directory” instead. I know that JMail can do this in ASP, but how do you do this in asp.net? -- --------------------

Hi folks, Got a problem - I've got all my automated emails (in HTML format) stored in a table in my DB (called tbl_emails). I've set up a trigger so that every time a new user registers (data put into tbl_users), it creates a validation code using UUID(), and outputs an email into my mail pickup folder (idea being that if the user clicks on the link contained in the email, they get validated). Code looks like this: SELECT CONCAT("To:...

Hello, We have several cases where an email, send with the CDO.Message object in ASP, is received malformed at the receiver's e-mail address. code in it. When the message is received at the client's email address there are some characters or text mallformed, each time at another position in the e-mail. I know for sure that the html code is valid so that's not the problem.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
