Sending http email - what sites can be used?

Post by jackjumper »

We're looking at using madExcept in the control software for a piece of semiconductor processing equipment. Usually there is an http connection available, but a email client is typically not installed.

I'd like to allow the customer to send an email if they find anything. So - what (free) http email sites are out there that can be used?

What would be really nice would be able to use gmail, however madexcept doesn't seem to support SSL in the email.

Email over HTTP is not supported by madExcept. You can set up your own website and tell madExcept to upload the bug reports there. That's what is meant with "upload to HTTP web server" in the madExcept settings dialog.

Alternatively, you can use e.g. the Indy components to realize your own bug report sending. You can call RegisterExceptActionHandler to seamlessly replace madExcept's bug report sending.

Ah - I get it now. Thanks

Well then, does anyone out there know of a free email site that supports non-SSL smtp?
