This "CHT Batch Bot" application uses SMTP mail provided by a CHT DLL called HNDNETSMTP.DLL written in C#. Before you use it, the application must be configured with valid email parameters the same as any other smtp email client requires configuration. This application is stand-alone but requires the DLL mentioned above be located on the target machine and registered via REGASM.EXE.
HNDMAILNET.EXE source code, because it is in Clarion .APP format, is included as a standard part of the CHT toolkit, provided both in .APP format as well as ready-to-run, in .EXE format.
The CHT email template used in this application is EMBEDNETSMTPCLASSES. The CHT class underlying this template is HNDNETSMTPCLASS located in files HNDNETSMTP.INC and HNDNETSMTP.CLW.
HNDMAILNET.EXE runs from the DOS prompt or can be called from another application using Clarion RUN, from a batch file or even from a .VBS script. It is capable of sending standard SMTP email as well as SSL SMTP email as found with GMAIL, HOTMAIL and other similar services.
