  SQL Server Tips by Burleson

Choice of Mail Library

With these issues in mind, this chapter describes a new XP called XP_SMTPSENDMAIL which sends mail using Internet standards based email i.e. SMTP. There are a number of SMTP libraries available such as the author’s CPJNSMTPConnection class available from as well as the ATL Server class CSMTPConnection. In addition there are commercial SMTP libraries available. Since the release of Windows 2000, there is a standard programming library called ‘CDO for Windows 2000’ built into Windows, which provides SMTP based mail. In addition to interfacing to SMTP mail servers, it also provides integration with the local SMTP service and its disk-based queue. This is ideally suited for integration with SQL Server as it allows the delivery of the emails to occur outside the context of SQL Server and thus not block your XP as would happen otherwise. CDO for Windows 2000 is designed to be incorporated into applications and as such does not have the quirks and foibles which Simple MAPI and Extended MAPI have, such as Security dialogs appearing when an email is being sent by third party programs. Basing an XP on CDO for Windows 2000 also means that the full richness of Internet emails can be made available through the XP. For example it would be relatively easy to extend the XP described in this chapter to set the priority of the email using the ‘X-Priority’ Mail header.
