Accessing HotMail from Delphi (Views: 100)
Is it possible to access a HotMail account through the POP3 and SMTP? I know its a web front end but I'd like to write a automated application which can send and receive mail using a HotMail account.
HotMail is not accessible through POP/SMTP. you must use their web interface.
There is no possible shortcut to read mail but you can open the default HotMail account in new message mode using this ShellExecute call:
ToAddress := 'firstname.lastname@example.org';
// Don't know why but this is required to get the
// correct compose address...
EightSpaces := ' ';
ShellExecute(Handle, PChar('open'), PChar('rundll32.exe'),
+ EightSpaces + ToAddress), nil, SW_NORMAL)
