SocketTools Internet Mail enables developers to easily integrate e-mail functionality within their applications. The components implement the standard SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4 protocols for sending and retrieving e-mail messages, with support for secure connections using SSL/TLS. The product includes both .NET and ActiveX components for 32-bit and 64-bit development and can be used with most software development tools.
Designed specifically for rapid application development, a single component provides a flexible, comprehensive interface without requiring that the developer use several controls and write additional code to integrate them. A simpler, unified interface means fewer lines of source code, less complexity and reduced maintenance, enabling developers to focus on their core application.
Advanced features, such as multiple authentication methods and delivery status notification, are also part of the standard feature set of the component. Complex messages, such as those which contain both plain and HTML styled text as well as multiple file attachments, can be easily created and processed with just a few lines of code.
The SocketTools Internet Mail components were developed using the core technologies in the SocketTools family of products, and are based on a solid foundation of award-winning software which conforms to standard protocols. The product includes example programs, a printable Developer's Guide and Technical Reference as well as context-sensitive online help. As with all Catalyst components, SocketTools Internet Mail is licensed royalty-free, without any runtime licensing fees and includes unlimited technical support.
