     CMapi v1.0 an MFC class to encapsulate sending mail using Simple MAPI Welcome to CMapi, 2 simple classes to encapsulate sending mail using Simple MAPI. Simple MAPI is a set of functions exported by MAPI32.dll which allows you to send and receive mail in a transport independent way. It is an optional part of all Win32 operating systems since Windows 95 (excluding Windows CE). MAPI is intended more for the corporate environment when compared with the Internet mail standard SMTP e.g. products such as MS Exchange Server use MAPI extensively. Transport providers are available for a number of messaging transports including Exchange Server, SMTP, Fax, cc:Mail CompuServe etc. To be able to specify different transports, MAPI provides the concept of profiles which are setup using the Mail control panel applet Features Simple and clean C++ interface. All the code is UNICODE compliant and build configurations are provided for this. Even though Simple MAPI only exports an ASCII versions of it's functions, the class internally performs the necessary conversions. The code can be used in a console application or without bringing up any Mapi dialogs if so desired. The code gracefully handles the case where MAPI is not installed on client machines. Internally the class loads the DLL and uses GetProcAddress calls. The enclosed zip file contains the source code and a simple test program to exercise all of the functions the classes provide.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
