hello, im trying to make a program that will send an email from my computer to my friend when i click a button. i want the email to be silent by which i mean no messages come up no interface. i want to hard code the message, and address. and if possble i would also like to add an attachment.

who ever said i like to make life easy for myself dammnn

i have tried using Mapi but the problem is im using aol, which means that when i send the email it opens up the aol interface and asks me to click the send button. i dont want this i want it all to happen itself. this is also true if i set my default email to outlook,or hotmail.

can someone please help.

Thank you

What version of windows are you running? You can do it in a web form based format that uses CDONTS and SMTP if you are running Win2k or XP Pro

Well, seeing as you are AOL I think you are pretty much limited to using their email system. They are probably also blocking any ports you might consider using outside of their network.
