Hi Chanmm

I think it is better to look for SMTPmail if it is VB.net

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...classtopic.asp

But on CDO did the first search on MSDN did give me this

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...figuration.asp

I hope this helps?

chanmm,
For a reasonable complete list of articles on using Outlook with .NET see:

http://www.microeye.com/resources/res_outlookvsnet.htm

It includes articles on using CDO from .NET.

If you have specific questions or problems, post them here and I or someone
else will answer them.

Hope this helps

Cor,
I agree! if Chanmm is simply wanting to send an email he should be using
SmtpMail!

However if he wants one of the other flavors of CDO (there are at least 3)
then the link I gave covers two of them while SmtpMail covers the third...

I guess it really depends on what Chanmm means when he says CDO! (don't you
just love Marketing's attempt at name recognition?)

Hope this helps

Hi Jay B,

I did give him a link to CDO also, however he asked CDO for VB.net.
My intention was to show that it was easy to find on MSDN.

To be true, I first had only that CDO link, but then I thought that is not
a good answer, because that is not real VB.net and did give that smtpmail
link also.

But thanks for the link, I have archived it.

Can be a better answer for the OP.

Cor,
I did give him a link to CDO also, however he asked CDO for VB.net.
My intention was to show that it was easy to find on MSDN. I noticed that, did not acknowledge it.
To be true, I first had only that CDO link, but then I thought that is not a good answer, because that is not real VB.net and did give that smtpmail
link also. Agreed...
Mostly to demonstrate how confusing this is:

The link you gave was CDOSYS (CDO for Windows 2000) which is the CDO used by
SmtpMail. I would recommend SmtpMail over CDOSYS for obvious reasons ;-)

The other two CDO, that I gave a link to, are:
- CDO 1.2.1
- CDO For Exchange

Excluding CDO Workflow & CDO For Exchange Management, I seem to remember a
fourth CDO floating around, however it is not listed at:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...vr_cdo_top.asp

I consider CDO Workflow & CDO For Exchange Management to fall under the
larger CDO For Exchange. And I'm not referring to the CDO Rendering library
that is part of CDO 1.2.1 when installed on the server...

Which is where it would be nice if the OP better stated which CDO he wants
;-)

To make matters worse, each CDO is installed with specific products and
based on platform have different options... For example CDO 1.2.1 is
optionally installed with Outlook (not Outlook Express) when installed on a
client PC, on the client it does not include the Rendering library. However
CDO 1.2.1 is also installed with Exchange Server, on the server it does
include the Rendering library...

I will check with my fellow Outlook MVPs to see if we can come up with the
fourth CDO. Of course I may be confused about the fourth CDO! ;-)

Confused yet? I am! ;-)

Hope this helps

Doh!

I missed seeing what I was looking at! Doh! Doh! Doh! (smacking forehead)
;-)

The following lists all four, I just missed it ;-)

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...vr_cdo_top.asp

The four CDOs are (in chronological order):

- CDO.DLL : CDO version 1.2.1
- CDONTS.DLL : CDO version 1.2.1 for Windows NT Server (not the same as CDO
version 1.2.1!)
- CDOSYS.DLL : CDO for Windows 2000
- CDOEX.DLL : CDO for Exchange 2000 Server

Hi Jay

Thanks for the information,

I started with mail with Microsoft Mail 3.0
(Not programming)

It was very confusing because the name of the client was as far as I
remember me Exchange.
Then there was mail 3.5 and after that or even was that also already the
server name changed to Exchange.

Fortunatly they changed the name of the client after a while to Outlook (and
integrated it in Office) but I can tell you that it was a long time very
confusing, but probably you did did know that already.
