Sending an email via MS Exchange, Lotus Notes or Outlook Hide the details

<Result> = EmailSendMessage(<Session ID> [, <Email> [, <Display> [, <Type>]]])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the message was placed in the outbox of MS Exchange, Lotus Notes or Outlook,
  • False otherwise. To get more details on the error, use ErrorInfo with the errMessage constant.
<Session ID>: emailNotesSession variable
Identifies the current email session. This parameter is an integer returned by EmailStartNotesSession.
<Email>: Optional Email variable
Name of the Email variable corresponding to the email to be sent.
If this parameter is not specified, the information contained in the Email structure is used.
<Display>: Optional boolean
  • True to display the message in a dialog box before sending it,
  • False (by default) to display no dialog box.
This parameter is taken into account only if the email session was started by <EmailNotesSession variable>.StartSession, by using the MS Exchange syntax with a profile name. In the other cases, the dialog box is not displayed.
Remark: This parameter is not available for Lotus Notes.
<Type>: Optional character string
Describes the type of message to send. By default, <Type> = "IPM" (Inter Personal Message).

Asynchronous mode

If the session was started in asynchronous mode (<EmailNotesSession variable>.StartSession and EmailStartSMTPSession), <emailNotesSession variable>.SendMessage creates an identifier for each email sent.
The email identifier is stored in the Email.MailIdentifier variable and can be used by EmailStatus to get the current status of the outgoing email (sent, in progress, etc.).
Processing the errors in asynchronous mode: <emailNotesSession variable>.SendMessage returns True if the email is placed in the email spooler, False if the spooler cannot be contacted. To determine if the email was sent, use EmailStatus.
