    Hi all,
    I have a very urgent issue. I know I can use stunnel to support SSL and be able to send through gmail accounts.
    But this solution is not good for me, since stunnel needs installation on all PCs that use blat.
    I downloaded the latest blat source and would like to find a component (to use for free or buy) that I can use with the blat source and let it support SSL.
    Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Hiba

    Stunnel does not need to be "installed", per se, it just needs some files to be located with the executable.  With that in mind, copying Blat and the Stunnel support files to the various systems is trivial.  I am guessing that you are a system admin of a Windows domain, so you could add the "installation" to your users' domain script that require Blat.

    Install Stunnel one time on a local system, then collect the files from that stunnel directory and place them where you want your user systems to have access.  If you then call Blat from a .cmd or .bat file, that same command file can start stunnel immediately before calling Blat.

    Thank you both for your quick replies…

    Namtog,
    I downloaded mailsend and it's source and trying to compile the project with visual studio but it  seems as not a quick task.

    Chip,
    I have installed it on my PC and I can see that there are lots of files in the folder in Program Files, do you know which files are needed to run stunnel to allow sending emails from blat through gmail? Are all the files in Program Files\stunnel needed?

    Thanks a lots
    Hiba

    F:\SourceForge>dir c:\STUNNEL
    Volume in drive C has no label.

    Directory of c:\STUNNEL
