Hello all...

Is there a way to send e-mail without attempting to open the default mail client on the users computer?

I would like to find a way to hardcode the mail server, the from, password etc.

If anyone knows of a way to do this I would be greatful.

I assume you want to do this so that the clients can't modify the message going out.

In order to send email without triggering your user's email client, you'd have to install some other program (e.g., a command-line mail program like minimail for windows) that could take the data from FM and ship it out directly. That can't be done with IWP; both the Send Mail and Send Event script steps are not web-compatible. Your only web-compatible option is to use the Open URL script step with a mailto-type entry--which will fire up the client's default mail program. You can load this up with all the information from FM, but you can't guarantee that the end user won't muck with it.

Maybe you could find a way to do this on a server-based product; basically, you'd have some serverside script that executed this. But that's beyond my abilities.
