Re: Regarding sendmail funcn

hi,
the first prerequisite is that ur SMTP server should be configured.
I have used it from 3 tier triggering from online push button. u can see the code below for ur reference.

&MAIL_FLAGS = 0;
&MAIL_TO = &mail_t;
&MAIL_CC = &mail_c;
&MAIL_BCC = "";
&MAIL_SUBJECT = "Request ID #" | CR_EMAIL_REC.CR_ID | " Approved - Request for " | &LN | ", Dept - " | CR_EMAIL_REC.CR_DEPTID;
&MAIL_TEXT = "Hi, Please find the attached Requestion Form";
&MAIL_FILES = "/disk2/psreports/PSFSDEV/" | &DOR | "/" | &CONTENTID | "/" | &FILENAME;
REM &MAIL_FILES = "/disk2/psreports/PSFSDEV/20080714/" | &CONTENTID | &FILENAME;
&MAIL_TITLES = &mail_title;
rem &MAIL_SENDER = "psadmin@psoft.com";
&RET = SendMail(&MAIL_FLAGS, &MAIL_TO, &MAIL_CC, &MAIL_BCC, &MAIL_SUBJECT, &MAIL_TEXT, &MAIL_FILES, &MAIL_TITLES);

If Not (&RET = 0) Then
WinMessage("Return status from mail = " | &RET);
End-If;

Re: Regarding sendmail function

Hi Kishore,
What actually you mean when you say line by line? I think you can use new line character while creating text body for email. Sendmail is a good function but if it does not work then you can use the mail class also.
