Using Microsoft CDO to send e-mail

You can use Microsoft's CDO object library to easily send emails from Progress using ActiveX.
It seems to use the local SMTP server installed with IIS, so you can get started with very little code.

def var objMessage as com-handle.

create "CDO.Message" objMessage.

objMessage:Subject = "Example CDO Message from Progress".
objMessage:From = "".
objMessage:To = "".
objMessage:TextBody = "This is some sample message text.".
