Accessing HotMail from Delphi
This article has not been rated yet. After reading, feel free to leave comments and rate it.
Is it possible to access a hotmail account through the POP3 and SMTP? I know its a web frontend but I'd like to write a automated application which can send and recieve mail using a Hotmail account.
Hotmail isn't accessable 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:
Thanks to Sylvestro Lorello for a correction in the source code.
ToAddress := 'email@example.com';
EightSpaces := ' ';
ShellExecute(Handle, PChar('open'), PChar('rundll32.exe'),
+ EightSpaces + ToAddress), nil, SW_NORMAL)
