Sending Email With MAPI Components in Visual Basic
(Page 1 of 4 )

MAPI is an acronym for the Messaging Application Programming Interface. It's a set of core system components that can be used to automate several windows tasks, such as notifying a technician via email when system resources are in a critically low state, or letting a help desk manager know when all log entries have been filled, etc.

MAPI components allow developers to create mail-enabled Visual Basic (or any other language that supports COM, such as C++ or Delphi) applications amongst other things. At runtime, we can connect our application to MAPI-compliant information services through which we can both send and receive emails.

In this tutorial I will be teaching you how to send and receive e-mail through your application using the MAPI controls. You should have Visual Basic 6 installed on your machine as well as a MAPI-compliant messaging system, such as Microsoft Exchanged, Microsoft Mail or Outlook.
