I’ve been successfully integrating email functionality in my desktop apps for a number of years now, BUT have never had to deal with a user using Office 365 (Outlook) and having Outlook.com as their email account. I know from my reading that using a “live” account like Outlook.com, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.) is different than working with “standard” email accounts.
addresses the issue somewhat (as do a few other threads I found on the forum) but the content of the thread doesn’t help me when I apply it to my coding. I’ve read a ton of stuff on the internet about it and frankly I think I’m more confused now than ever. I know, for instance, that the SMTP Server port should be 587 (not 25 as usual), SMTP Server Address should be “smtp.live.com”, etc. and on and on but with no luck.
I tried various MBS example programs for CURL Email applications but got no love. The error message I get is “55” which tells me nothing meaningful or helpful (kError_SEND_ERROR = 55 Plugin Version: 9.8. Function: One of the error constants for the Error event. Notes: failed sending network data).
I could post the code I have used successfully for the past few years (that I tried here but wouldn’t work) but it would be difficult since the code is spread across several different methods, events and properties.
I guess the bottom line is, "Does anyone have a method they have written that successfully sends/receives emails from Office 365 (Outlook) using Outlook.com as the email account?
I’m using Xojo 2016 r1.1 with Windows 7 Professional.
Thanks in advance!
