How to - Creating an outlook message (default client) and sending

P: n/a
Hi,

I know I can create e-mails and send them using System.Web.Mail, but I was
wondering how can I do it using the POP3 settings on Office Outlook or
Outlook Express.
The problem I have is some users are being denied access to relying directly
to the smtp server, but they can send using outlook's POP3 settings.

Thanks,

Carlos Lozano

Actually, POP3 is how you get mail and SMTP is how you send it!

TheBurgerMan,

Yes, I know about POP3 (port 110) and SMTP (port 25).

Let add more info.
I created a cass library using System.Web.Mail to send emails and
attachments. It works find if authentication is not required, but fails when
required. I added the user credentials to the message fields, but they still
get access denied. if they use Outlook the messages are delivered (using same
credentials). There is something different somewhere that I haven't found, so
I am thinking using Outlook's functionality as a fast solutiuon.

Yes but here the problem is that you have to POP before you SMTP so that you
are authorized. Basically with most web hosts is that if you authenticate
POP3 before SMTP then SMTP authentication is turned off for your IP for a
period of X minutes.

In any case here is an article about automating Outlook. I don't have an
answer directly on how to retrieve the POP3 settings other than they would
be in the Outlook profile for the user.
