You'll need to configure SendM@ail with the details of your SMTP server
and also with your personal details.
Your SMTP Server Name is usually the second part of your email address.
For example if your email address is
your SMTP Server Name will be
If this doesn't work, your System Administrator or
ISP will be able to tell you the exact name. If you have another email
program that does work check the settings it uses.
The Port is almost always 25 for SMTP - check with your ISP or Network Administrator if it doesn't work. Once you have these details you can enter them in the SMTP Setup Dialog. To get there use the
SMTP Server... menu options.
Then your personal details are entered in the
Dialog box. You should enter the return address i.e. your email address
that others can reply to in the From field. An example of an email address is
And you can optionally enter a signature - this will be appended to all emails you send.
log outgoing mail check box will allow you to
save a copy of all mail you send to a file called
This is in the same directory as SendM@ail is run from.
Click on the Send Menu option, enter the recipents name, the subject of the message
and the message text and then click the Send button.
You can also double click on the tray icon to bring the dialog box up even more quickly.
You need to create a text file using an text editor such as notepad
(not Word or WordPad). The first line of the text file must be the list
of recipients - separate them with either spaces or commas. The second
and subsequent lines of the text file are the message.
Save the file as mail.txt in the same directory
as the SendM@ail program. Then from the SendM@ail directory type
sendm32 mail.txt. Instead of mail.txt you can use any
other valid filename. Note that there must be a space after the colon following
each header line.
And also a blank line between the last header and the first line of the message.
An example message is shown below
To: email@example.com CC: firstname.lastname@example.org bcc: secretary@localhost Subject: News of great new mail app for the net Bill, Check this out - I've just discovered a great new app on the net. I'll let you have the URL when we get together on Friday. Regards AlNote You can omit the list of recipients if you specify them on the command line
Another way of specifying the recipients is to create a text file containing the
recipients email addresses (each on seperate lines) and using the
option where Filename is the name of the file containing the addresses. This is
useful when using majordomo.
eg sendm32 -aADDR.TXT mail.txt where ADDR.TXT contains the following
fred@white_house.gov email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
There are several command line options
sendm32 -p25 -hmailhost.thebiz.com -ot -q -email@example.com -tsupport.deadsys.com file.txt
This example would use port
25 of the SMTP host
mailhost.thebiz.com to send
support.deadsys.com. It would not send the To: header line
and the From: header line would be
firstname.lastname@example.org, also the SendM@ail
status window would not be displayed while the message was being sent.
