We want to send emails from an Acucobol version 6.2 program using various email protocols
We have successfully been able to send emails using the ActiveX control autogen for Outlook. We have also used the sample program WINBMAIL which uses C$SOCKET to send emails from Yahoo and MIcrosoft email applications (Live, Outlook, Hotmail, MSN). However we have not been able to successfully send emails using this version of WINBMAIL with Gmail even after installing STUNNEL.
Our clients use many different email protocols for sending emails and Outlook is not a built-in feature in Windows7. We do not want to force our customers to install it or have Outlook as their default email client.
Is there a newer version of WINBMAIL that supports the newer email protocols? Is there a sample program using an ActiveX autogen for Thunderbird?
Old posts on this forum indicate that there is a product from Marshallsoft that can be purchased to send emails. We don't want to go this route unless there is no other alternative.
