Email with html in body

Post by sigipa »

Hello All,

I am new to NewLisp, so please excuse a stupid question.

I need to send html in the body of an email. I've been trying to modify the "send-mail" function in smtpx.lsp to accept an additional mail-headers argument, but I'm not having much luck. I thought I could add the argument and then add a line to the send-headers function, but that's not working. Can anyone please offer some advice on the best way to do this?

thanks,
-S

Show us what you tried, please.

Hi,

These snippets are from the smtp.lsp file. If I run this, it just does nothing. No errors.

Code: Select all

(define (send-mail mail-from mail-to mail-subject (mail-content-type "") mail-body SMTP-server (use
r-name "") (password ""))


 (define (mail-send-header) 
    (net-send-get-result (append "TO: " mail-to)) 
    (net-send-get-result (append "FROM: " mail-from)) 
    (net-send-get-result (append "SUBJECT: " mail-subject))
    (net-send-get-result (append "Content-type: " mail-content-type))
    (net-send-get-result (append "X-Mailer: newLISP v." (string (nth -2 (sys-info)))))) 
Thanks,
-S

It shouldn't do anything, all you are doing is defining a couple functions.

Hi,

I was just showing the changes I made to the smtp.lsp file. I am calling the send-mail function. I'll keep playing with it. I'm probably just missing something.

Thanks,

First, does it work without your modifications.

Second, show how you are calling the function with your modifications. And show how this differs from the call to the unmodified function.
