19. Sending emails
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
In a website, emails make it possible to:
  • simplify communication between users: send emails to the website manager, use a mailing list, etc.
  • validate an order: in a business website, an email is sent to the customers to validate their orders.
  • transfer data from one computer to another: the new orders entered in a business site are transferred by email to the company headquarters, etc.
WEBVED includes two methods to send emails from a website.
1. Sending emails from the user's computer
Use this method when the user must send an email to a specific address: site's webmaster, technical support, sales department, etc.
EmailOpenMail opens the user's email program. Some parameters can be set as default: email address of the recipient, etc.
This method allows you to use the user's email program: no specific process is required in the WEBDEV site.
2. Sending emails from the server (Session pages or Active WEBDEV Pages only)
In this case, the server manages the emails.
The emails can be sent:
  • in the WEBDEV website directly (for an email data transfer, or for an order confirmation email, for example);
  • by the email spooler (provided with WEBDEV).
Use this method to customize the sending of emails:
  • checking the content of emails sent by the users (mailing website),
  • checking the validity of the recipient's address,
  • encrypting the information sent by email,
  • validating a process, etc.
