ActiveMail is a component object model (COM
) object that provides SMTP
email sending, POP3
email downloading, and FTP
authentication services. The distribution includes the COM object, its source code, and a Visual Basic
ActiveMail Console program that lets users easily send mass email messages. ActiveMail Console includes recipient chunking to work around email servers that enforce a maximum number of recipients per email message. This software is not
meant for SPAM, but rather email distribution lists.
While attending Bryant University, I used ActiveMail as a target for an academic project in a desktop publishing course. It makes some claims that ActiveMail does not implement, such as support for an instant message protocol that never materialized, but it's email capabilities hold true.
