Hello to all.

I announce to you that I have released to the first beta version of the program that I am developing at the moment.

It consists of a module that is able to send emails customized to many directions of mail.

The singularity of this project is that to be able to send the mails I have extended the SmtpMail class of package Web, creating an retort that is able to authentificate itself in the server (to do login).

Another peculiar thing, that perhaps can serve somebody, to him is that it has capacity to import the data of a file with format csv.

In this project I use the CtrlGrid of Daniel (unodgs). The message editor is totally inspired by UWord.

You can download the code from https://sourceforge.net/projects/bigmailer/

Things to do:
* to establish the translation system well, now he is in English and some pieces in Spanish.
* to control the errors in the shipments.
* to control the "black list" that is to say, the people whom they have asked for that is not sent more mail to them.
* to use a system of decent data base (now I use text in format INI)
* to be able to insert images in the messages (and to see if it is possible soon to be codified as HTML)
* to establish the system of plug-in being able to extract the data of other more complex data bases.

BTW, makeing it sf.net project is really a great idea!

Also an advice: You really should use sf.net options, like "news" to get an attention. Register on freshmeat.net too and announce any releases. These things pay off.

sf.net does not have in the section "user-interface" no reference to ultimate++. There are secions for GTK,QT,WX,...

Perhaps we could create it...

Hi Nico,

I wanted to try your package but there is no GridCtrl in my dev10-dev1. Is it in dev10-dev2?

I will include it in the following beta.

GridCtrl is an control developed by unodgs and you can download from http://dgs.pac.pl/dgs.php?file=files/Grid%20Ctrl/grid_ctrl_0 .95.7z

If you have the U++ 610-dev2 and you use linux, may be you have any problem in GridCtrl/GridCtrl.cpp.

If you use Windows, please, report me of any error so that it can fix it.

Hi Nico,

I was able to compile it and run.
There is no place (I didn't see it) where to enter my smpt server. Then I saw there is a .ini file with such information. I entered manually the information but the program crashed when I run it. I suspect some mismatch with the .ini file.
In fact I delete the .ini file the program run again.
Then the program create a new .ini but the next time it crash again.

Let me poit out that in some case (my case) the smtp server do not need "user" and "password" autentication. In this case the smtp class should not use these information or, I suspect, some error may appear.

I like the idea of the program. Let me suggest to add:
- a window to enter smtp info with eventual user and password,
- possibility to attach file(s),
- request of receipt return.

Luigi

PS: at last I've seen the Daniel's famous GridCtrl! I hope to get in future even some short info that shows the difference with the ArrayCtrl and what kind of problems it can resolve.
I would like to use it in my next application in conjunction with sqlite3. For the moment I'm studying this last in my spare time.

PPS: I used the smptEx class you posted in this forum. I put it in the Web package. I hope you used the same for bigmailer.

In order to enter the config of smpt server you can go to the ? (menu), preferences item.

In linux the program works ok. May be I win recompile and test in windows ...

Thank for your test.

Now I have found it! I think the preference should stay in someother place more evident.
However do not work. Maybe because I have not used user and password that I do not need.

you are right, I will put the menu of configuration in another more visible place.

By the way, I have proven the program in Windows, using visual studio 2005 express, with U++-610-dev2 and have found the failure that was in the starting.

If you want to prove it, simply you have modifies lines 146 and 167 in the file cfg.cpp
  from = ini.Get("from", ""); 
  subject = ini.Get("subject", ""); 

I forgot to add the second parameter to him, and, as in linux it has worked without problems, I could not detect the error.

I am working in one beta2 to solve other failures...

Exactly. The smtpEx class and my related posts in this forum are the previus view from this program.

Hello all

I have uploaded to a new beta version to sourceforge and have corrected some obvious problems.

* Correct load of messages in windows.
* Add more visibility to the message name.
* Now the program saves correctly the message file.

Now the next step is to add an plugin system to extract emails, names (and other data) from complex databases, for marketing pruposes. This is my next goal.

I have compiled the bigmailer-beta2 with U++ 610-dev2 in windows and it works correctly.

Here are the executable, please test it in order to know if its works.

Hi Nico,

Thank you, it works.
This means I must upgrade to dev2 version.
(Perhaps the executable now can be removed to save space in the forum).

Hello to all again!

I finish releasing to another beta version (3) to bigmailer.

What has again is that I have reconstructed the UI completely, now I believe that it is clearer and easier to use.

Another new thing that it has is that it supports the change of language (Spanish/English)

You can download it from https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=17971 0
