    How do I send email from Flex?

    Jerry62712 Level 1

      I would like to send an email from Flex.  Searching through the forum I found the same question unanswered from a long time at and found answers on how to setup Flex as the POP3 get email client.  But my needs are much simpler.  I just want to send an email.

       

      Anyone ever do this?

          The common approach is to do this sort of work on the server; and just have Flex ping a remote service.  It is very easy to send e-mail in most server side software..

           

          In theory you could use socket classes to hook up to an SMTP server to send e-mail directly from Flex, but since the other, common, ways are so easy I can't imagine it is worth the time.
