I recently bought your entire ChilKat package and am very pleased with it. I have written my own email manager using your ActiveX and was wondering about one issue:
Is it possible to have a progress bar during uploading and downloading?
When the following code executes I just have to wait, but it would be great if I could show a progress bar so that I can see how the operation (possibly with large attachments) is getting along.
success = mailmansend.SendEmail(email)
Something like "Sub ZipFile_WriteZipPercentDone(ByVal percentDone As Long, abort As Long)" from the Zip ActiveX would be handy.

Here are some links to examples for SMTP and POP3 progress monitoring using the ActiveX in VB6:
Here is a VB6 listing showing all of the ChilkatMailMan2 events. The event callback functions are easily generated by VB6 via the IDE:
Dim WithEvents mailman As ChilkatMailMan2
All of the "abort" arguments are output-only, meaning that your app may set the "abort" argument equal to 1 to abort the operation in progress.
