Could someone please send me an example of using the mail and mailman ActiveX classes to send an email via Hotmail? Gmail works fine, its just Hotmail that is the problem. I need to know the mailman class properties in order to send email via Hotmail.

Google "hotmail smtp settings"...

Chilkat does not provide documentation for email providers. It really only makes sense for the email service provider themselves (such as GMail, Yahoo, Comcast, HotMail, etc.) to publish the settings for their SMTP/POP3/IMAP servers.

I'm not asking you to provide information for every email provider under the sun. I am just asking because I submitted the recommended mailman property values when attempting to connect to Hotmail via SMTP and it failed. Can you please post a short example of how to connect to Hotmail via SMTP? Thank you.

Try to use next values:

Host: smtp-mail.outlook.com
Port: 587 or 25
SSL = true
Login: your Email
Password: your password
