Mail sending of PDF document for webmail

Post by avay » Sun Oct 03 2004

Does the PDF Converter dll enable us to send PDF document for user who only have webmail, like: hotmail, AOL, Netscape messanger, etc.?
Should I check for MAPI application (i.e.: Outlook, Outlook Express. etc.) in the user computer, before trying to send mail with webmail (if the user has one)?
How do we check if the user have MAPI application before trying to send
PDF document with webmail?

Hello,

Using the PDF Converter you can send mails using either MAPI or SMTP.

To know if your customer can send mails using MAPI you can open any applicaiton, Word lets say, open a document and click on File --> Send By e-mail if this works so the user can use MAPI.

Hope this helps.

Hello, Joan!
Your answer does not cover all the items in my question above.
I want to know how can I know programmatically if the user can use MAPI application to send PDF by mail? If he doesn't have MAPI application - can I use SMTP mail sending to send PDF document, when the user only have a web mail address, like: hotmail, Yahoo, etc. ?

Hope I clarified my question.

Hello,

For knowing programatically if the user has MAPI please check MSDN unless any of our users did it before so he / she can help you.

If the user doesn't have MAPI you can't use SMTP to send mails.

Hope this helps.
