Email Service ...

Postby Gaev » Sat Sep 14, 2013 4:56 am

Yesterday, I came to know of an Email Service provider called Mailgun ... claims it ...

- is built for developers
- supports a RESTful API or an SMTP interface
- lets you send, receive and track emails
- first 10,000 emails per month for free, next 500,000 at $0.50 per 1,000

... did not see any daily limits.

So I shared this information with David de Argentina at this forum post

As you will see in his responses, he was able to use ...

1) his own NeoSendMail plugin to send HTML'ed emails using secure server

2) the native NeoBook SendMail command as well

Hopefully, this should provide a solution for the many instances (evidenced by the forum posts over the years) where NeoBook Developers ran into difficulties with "sending of emails by their clients" due to particular configurations on the client machines.

Win32 console utility to send mail via SMTP or post to usenet via NNTP
by P.Mendes,M.Neal,G.Vollant,T.Charron,T.Musson,H.Pesonen,A.Donchey,C.Hyde
Blat <filename> -to <recipient> [optional switches (see below)]

Blat -SaveSettings -f <sender email addy> -server <server addr>
[-port <port>] [-try <try>] [-profile <profile>]
[-u <login id>] [-pwd <password>]
Blat -install <server addr> <sender's addr> [<try>[<port>[<profile>]]] [-q]

Blat -profile [-delete | "<default>"] [profile1] [profileN] [-q]
Blat -h

-------------------------------- Installation ---------------------------------
-SaveSettings : store common settings to the Windows Registry. Takes the
same parameters as -install, and is only for SMTP settings.
-install[SMTP|NNTP|POP3|IMAP] <server addr> <sender email addr> [<try n times>
[<port> [<profile> [<username> [<password>]]]]]

port defaults are SMTP=25, NNTP=119, POP3=110, IMAP=143
default profile can be specified with a '-'
username and/or password may be stored to the registry
order of options is specific
use -installNNTP for storing NNTP information
use -installPOP3 for storing POP3 information
(sender and try are ignored, use '-' in place of these)
use -installIMAP for storing IMAP information
(sender and try are ignored, use '-' in place of these)

--------------------------------- The Basics ----------------------------------
<filename> : file with the message body to be sent
if your message body is on the command line, use a hyphen (-)
as your first argument, and -body followed by your message
if your message will come from the console/keyboard, use the
hyphen as your first argument, but do not use -body option.

-------------------------------- Other options --------------------------------
-xtndxmit : Attempt to use POP3 to transmit when accessing POP3 first
-h : displays this help (also -?, /?, -help or /help)
-q : suppresses all output to the screen
-debug : echoes server communications to a log file or screen
(overrides -q if echoes to the screen)
-log <file> : log everything but usage to <file>
-timestamp : when -log is used, a timestamp is added to each log line
-overwritelog : when -log is used, overwrite the log file
-ti <n> : set timeout to 'n' seconds. Blat will wait 'n' seconds for
server responses
-try <n times> : how many times blat should try to send (1 to 'INFINITE')
-binary : do not convert ASCII | (pipe, 0x7c) to CrLf in the message
-hostname <hst> : select the hostname used to send the message via SMTP
this is typically your local machine name
-raw : do not add CR/LF after headers
-delay <x> : wait x seconds between messages being sent when used with
-maxnames or -multipart

options files and recipient list files. The default is ;
-superdebug : hex/ascii dump the data between Blat and the server
-superdebugT : ascii dump the data between Blat and the server

Note that if the '-i' option is used, <sender> is included in 'Reply-to:'
and 'Sender:' fields in the header of the message.

Optionally, the following options can be used instead of the -f and -i

-mailfrom <addr> The RFC 821 MAIL From: statement
-from <addr> The RFC 822 From: statement
-replyto <addr> The RFC 822 Reply-To: statement
-returnpath <addr> The RFC 822 Return-Path: statement
-sender <addr> The RFC 822 Sender: statement

For backward consistency, the -f and -i options have precedence over these
RFC 822 defined options. If both -f and -i options are omitted then the
RFC 821 MAIL FROM statement will be defaulted to use the installation-defined
default sender address.
