  • Read SMTP settings

    How is the account name and SMTP server name read into a PB program?
    Most interested in getting from Outlook Express.
    The world is full of apathy, but who cares?

    For the current version of OE, I believe it's stored somewhere under the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager", however I believe this is different for earlier versions of OE. And Vista uses Windows Mail, which is a completely different mail client. In my opinion, you're far better off just asking for the user to specify what SMTP/POP3/IMAP4 server(s) they want to use with your application.

      If you can find the format, within OE or outlook you can export account settings into an "iaf" file
