Email and Web Applications


If you wish to send emails from your web application, there are 2 approaches:

  • You or your ISP (whoever has access to the Web Application Server ) can set up an email profile that identifies the email service that you application will use.

  • You can send your emails with lower level functions that do not need a profile. These are: EMAIL_SEND(), EMAIL_SMTP_OPEN(), EMAIL_SMTP_SEND(), and EMAIL_SMTP_CLOSE().

MAPI is not required to support email by a web application. MAPI is relevant only when opening an external client email program and this does not make sense in the context of a web application.


Web publishing applications only.
