      i have downloaded

      blat.exe, blat.dll, blat.lib to

      windows/system32 under windows xp sp2

      i have configured an email account

      cutebabycutecute@...

      to send mail and incoming as well as outgoing which is working with

      outlook express.


      i have given the following commands from DOS command line


      blat -install smtp.gmail.com cutebabycutecute@...

      ( this gives a message that the mail server is configured)

      NEXT

      i have created a file tosend.txt in notepad with some text.

      i have given the following command

      blat tosend.txt -to cutebabycutecute@... -subject "sub line"


      this gives an error message

      login name is cutebabycutecute@...
      **** Error **** The SMTP server does not like the server name.
      Have you set your mail address correctly?

        Well, first thing is that smtp.gmail.com doesn't respond on the
        default SMTP port and uses security, so you need something like
        stunnel to help Blat connect. Search the list archives for stunnel and
        smtp.gmail.com.

        Greetings lalit, Besides Stunnel (find a configured version at YGB files section) you need to activate SMTP for Gmail. It is not enabled by default. To do so

          for Gmail. It is not enabled by default.

          To do so activate POP.

            stunnel can be found here http://www.stunnel.org/
            The examples are in the list archives in a number of places. If you
            give it a try and still have problems, post what you did and what
            problem you had and someone will probably jump in an point you in the
            right direction.
