I’ve spend quite a bit of time these days searching for a simple way to send email from C++.
There sure is a lot of stuff on this on the Net, but there was one trouble – the program I’m writting is an NT service. Thus, all those MAPI-based solutions didn’t work for me (there are simply too many small things you have to take care of, that disable simple installation of software).
So, I just looked up “SMTP” on Wikipedia, and believe it or not, it was enough. I just wrote the whole thing as a pure plain-text communication with SMTP server, at it worked at first shot, haha!
