Persits.MailSender Properties
AltBody As String (Read/Write)
Specifies an alternative text version of a message while Body specifies an HTML version. When this property is set, AspEmail generates a "multipart/alternative" message to support email clients that are not HTML-enabled. Side effect: when this property is set, IsHTML property gets set to True. This is a premium feature.
Body As String (Read/Write)
Specifies a message body. Can be in a text or HTML format. In the latter case, the IsHTML property must be set to True.
CharSet As String (Read/Write)
"ISO-8859-1" by default. Specifies the charset part of the Content-Type MIME header. Setting this property to a non-default value causes AspEmail to perform a conversion of message body characters into the specified character set. If this property it set to "UTF-8", AspEmail uses the UTF-8 encoding. To learn more, and for a list of valid values for this property, see Chapter 6. This is a premium feature.
ContentTransferEncoding As String (Read/Write)
"7bit" by default. Specifies the Content-Transfer-Encoding MIME header for the message body. Other valid values include "8bit" and "quoted-printable". If you set this property to "quoted-printable" AspEmail will automatically convert the message body to the Quoted-Printable format as specified in RFC-2045. You should always set this property to "quoted-printable" if you set CharSet to "UTF-8". This is a premium feature.
Expires As Date (Read-Only)
Returns the expiration date of the component's premium features. Returns 9/9/9999 if a valid registration key is installed. Returns 0 (displayed as "12:00 AM") if the expiration value in the registry is corrupt or missing.
From As String (Read/Write)
Specifies the sender's email address. This property is required.
FromName As String (Read/Write)
Specifies the sender's name.
Helo As String (Read/Write)
This string is sent with the HELO command (or EHLO if Username property is set) when an SMTP session begins. Used by an SMTP client to identify its domain name to the SMTP server. By default, AspEmail uses a value returned by the GetComputerNameEx Win32 API.
Host As String (Read/Write)
The internet address of an SMTP host to be used to send email. This property is required, unless message queuing is used and a host is specified via the EmailAgent configuration panel.
IsHTML As Boolean (Read/Write)
False by default. Must be set to True if the body is in the HTML format.
MailFrom As String (Read/Write)
Specifies an email address for the Return-Path: header. Useful for bounced-mail handling purposes. If this property is not specified, the From value is used for this header.
Password As String (Read/Write)
See comments to the property Username. This is a premium feature.
Port As Integer (Read/Write)
Specifies the SMTP port number. 25 by default.
Priority As Integer (Read/Write)
Specifies message priority. Valid values are 1 (high), 3 (normal) and 5 (low). 0 by default which means priority is not specified.
Queue As Boolean (Read/Write)
Enables message queuing. False by default. If set to True, specifies that a subsequent call to Send will place the message in a message queue to be processed by EmailAgent. This is a premium feature.
QueueFileName As String (Read-Only)
Returns the name of a message file generated by a call to Mail.Queue = True followed by Mail.Send. Do NOT use this property to specify a file attachments, use the AddAttachment method instead.
RegKey As String (Write-Only)
Specifies the registration key. If this property is not set, AspEmail will look for a registration key in the system registry under HKLM\Software\Persits Software\AspEmail\RegKey.
Subject As String (Read/Write)
Specifies the message subject.
Timeout As Integer (Read/Write)
Specifies socket timeout (in millisecond).
Timestamp As Date (Read/Write)
Used for deferred message processing. Specifies when the message is to be sent out from the queue by EmailAgent. This property is only used when Queue is set to True, and ignored when it is False.
Username As String (Read/Write)
Used for SMTP authentication together with Password. Use the Username/Password properties if your SMTP server requires a mail client to supply authentication parameters. AspEmail supports AUTH=LOGIN, CRAM-MD5 and NTLM authentication methods. This is a premium feature.
Version As String (Read-Only)
Returns a string representing the current component version, e.g. "".

Adds a file to the list of file attachments to be sent with the message. A full physical path must be specified. This method can be called multiple times per message.
Sub AddAttachmentMem(Name As String, Blob As Variant)
Attaches a memory file. Name specifies the file name, Blob is a memory binary array. A typical 2nd argument would be a recordset value containing a file blob, or an expression such as File.Binary where File is an AspUpload file object. See Chapter 3 for more info.
Sub AddBcc(Address As String, Optional Name = "")
Adds an email address to the message's BCC: (blind carbon copy) list. This method can be called multiple times per message.
Sub AddCC(Address As String, Optional Name = "")

Sub AddCustomHeader(Header As String)
Adds a custom header to the message, e.g. mail.AddCustomHeader "Return-Receipt-To: <>"

Starting with Version, you can use this method to specify a custom Message ID for your message, e.g.

mail.AddCustomHeader "Message-ID: abc12356"

Sub AddEmbeddedImage(Path As String, ContentID As String)
Adds an image file to the list of images embedded in the message body. ContentID is a string without spaces, such as "My-Image", which will be referenced by the body HTML in the following way: <IMG SRC="cid:My-Image"> or <BODY BACKGROUND="cid:My-Image">. See Chapter 4 for more info. This is a premium feature
Sub AddEmbeddedImageMem(Name As String, ContentID As String, Blob As Variant)
Same as AddEmbeddedImage but adds an image from memory rather than disk. This is a premium feature.
Sub AddReplyTo(Address As String, Optional Name)
Adds an email address and optionally the corresponding full name to the message's Reply-To: list. This method can be called multiple times per message.
Sub AppendBodyFromFile(Path As String, Optional AddToBody = True)

Starting with Version, this method supports text files in Unicode format (both little-endian and big-endian.)

This is a premium feature.

Function EncodeHeader(Header As String, Optional Charset = "ISO-8859-1") As String
Encodes a string containing non-US-ASCII characters according to RFC-1522, returns the resultant encoded string. Use this method to encode a non-US-ASCII subject, sender's name or recipient's name, e.g.

Mail.Subject = Mail.EncodeHeader("La fête à Jean-Sébastien Bach")


Mail.AddAddress "", Mail.EncodeHeader("Øystein")

Charset can be set to "UTF-8" or any valid character set code described in Chapter 6.

Sub LogonUser(Domain As String, Username As String, Password As String, Optional Flags = 2)
Impersonates the specified user account. If Domain is empty, the local computer will be used to validate the Username/Password. The caller must have the "Act as Part of the Operating System" privilege, otherwise the error "A required privilege is not held by client" error will be thrown.

This method is useful when using message queuing (Mail.Queue = True) if the message queue is located on another machine and the current user account's credentials are insufficient to place a message in a remote queue.

The Flags argument should not normally be used.

Sub Reset()
Clears all address and attachment lists so that a new message can be sent.
Sub ResetAll()
Same as Reset plus resets all properties to their respective default values.
Sub RevertToSelf()
Ends impersonation begun by LogonUser.
Function Send(Optional Path = "") As Boolean
Sends a message. Returns True if successful, False otherwise. Throws exceptions in case of an error. If Mail.Queue is set to True, the message is not sent directly to the SMTP server but placed in the message queue for further processing by EmailAgent. The name of the message file thus created can be retrieved via the property QueueFileName. Path specifies the message queue location. If this argument is omitted, the default message queue location is used. In case message queuing is not used, Path is ignored.
Sub SendEncrypted(Msg As CryptoMessage)
Sends an encrypted message. Msg is an object creatable by the AspEncrypt component. See AspEncrypt Web site for more information.
