All of those have SMTP capabilities, if you pay for the access to the SMTP. But the free versions are webmail access, and don't have SMTP access.

Perhaps this is the case with Yahoo, but Gmail is generous: "POP access is free for all Gmail users and we have no plans to charge for it in the future." laugh

Gmail has an SMTP server at smtp.gmail.com, which is available to all Gmail users who have enabled POP in their settings panel.

Unfortunately—or fortunately, depending on how you look at it—this server is not like many others; it requires that all clients log on using SSL. At this time, you can't create SSL sockets with mIRC, so the only way to connect to that server is through an SSL wrapper like Stunnel.

Here is an example config file for Stunnel (stunnel.conf) that forwards localhost:25 to smtp.gmail.com:465. Once you load Stunnel with this config file, direct your script to connect to localhost:25 as its SMTP server.

  • client=yes
    [gmail smtp]
    accept=25
    connect=smtp.gmail.com:465

Ask the scripters. This has close to nothing to do with mIRC.

I would say it fits perfectly in this category since
he's trying to get his mIRC script to work.

i see that many of you replied to this post.
i am sorry because i didnt know that smtp is something special
i downloaded 1 script from net and i saw that author made this email sending (my point is that i havent scripted it myself) thatz why i dont know what is diference between normal mail and this smtp... my thought was to connect to any of free mail services like hotmail, yahoo, google, lycos and to send mails (just for testing not for spam)

so next question is why all scripters make emailer only for SMTP service ?
why not for free webmail ?
or maybe mirc scripting is limited for that ?

well if itz too much for answer then dont laugh

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is just that (simple) therefore easier to script than web page access (which free webmail would require). The only problem with it is that you can only SEND email using SMTP. Either POP or IMAP is required to actually retrieve your email from the server.
Definitions:
SMTP
POP
IMAP

Your internet provider should provide POP and SMTP servers for your own use. Simply plug those into an existing script for it to work.
