Send a Simple Email
Create a simple email and sends it. The SendEmail method establishes a connection (session) with the SMTP server if necessary, and leaves the connection open so that additional sends may proceed using the same session. The SMTP connection (session) may be explicitly closed by calling CloseSmtpSession.
Important: Some SMTP servers do not actually send the email until the connection is closed. In these cases, it is necessary to call CloseSmtpConnection for the mail to be sent. Most SMTP servers send the email immediately, and it is not required to close the connection.
' The mailman object is used for sending and receiving email. Dim mailman As New ChilkatMailMan2 ' Any string argument automatically begins the 30-day trial. Dim success As Long success = mailman.UnlockComponent("30-day trial") If (success <> 1) Then Text1.Text = Text1.Text & mailman.LastErrorText & vbCrLf Exit Sub End If ' Set the SMTP server. mailman.SmtpHost = "smtp.chilkatsoft.com" ' Set the SMTP login/password (if required) mailman.SmtpUsername = "myUsername" mailman.SmtpPassword = "myPassword" ' Create a new email object Dim email As New ChilkatEmail2 email.Subject = "This is a test" email.Body = "This is a test" email.From = "Chilkat Support <email@example.com>" email.AddTo "Chilkat Admin","firstname.lastname@example.org" ' To add more recipients, call AddTo, AddCC, or AddBcc once per recipient. ' Call SendEmail to connect to the SMTP server and send. ' The connection (i.e. session) to the SMTP server remains ' open so that subsequent SendEmail calls may use the ' same connection. success = mailman.SendEmail(email) If (success <> 1) Then Text1.Text = Text1.Text & mailman.LastErrorText & vbCrLf Exit Sub End If ' Some SMTP servers do not actually send the email until ' the connection is closed. In these cases, it is necessary to ' call CloseSmtpConnection for the mail to be sent. ' Most SMTP servers send the email immediately, and it is ' not required to close the connection. We'll close it here ' for the example: success = mailman.CloseSmtpConnection() If (success <> 1) Then MsgBox "Connection to SMTP server not closed cleanly." End If MsgBox "Mail Sent!"
