But i´m having winsock error and open Dr. Watson too.

Can anywhone help me
Greetings Paulo (psctec),
Let's take a look at the command line.
I'll list them on separate lines for clarity.
blat -- OK so far!
text.txt -- Ok if file exists
-to email@example.com -- Sounds good
-server pop.provider.com -- Looks suspect,
you are using a POP server and than set
the port to 25, a SMTP default
-port 25 -- If it's POP the port would be
110 No need to use -port if you can use the
default for type of connection.
-f firstname.lastname@example.org -- OK
-u email@example.com -- This is for SMTP AUTH
-pw pass -- This is for SMTP AUTH
If you need to do a POP3 login check syntax.txt
that comes with the Blat download and you will find;
-pu <username> : username for POP3 LOGIN (use with -ppw)
-ppw <password> : password for POP3 LOGIN (use with -pu)
The first thing I would change is -server to;
The login info can be found in your email client
or on your ISP's web site.
Mail PassView is a cool tool for login info;
Thanks for your help.
I change pop.provider.com to smtp.provider.com.
But the error persists.
He open the Dr Watson acess violation (0xc0000005) Address (0x77f64d8a).
Doesn´t have that to install or to configure nothing so that winsock work?
Windows NT 4 server without IIS or add-ons packs work?
I have a small tool that may be of help
to you. NBI, read about it here;
Download it from here;
It has a few examples to help you do a Blat
install and then send a test email or two.
Blat usually has everything it needs. It doesn't
depend on IIs. I don't use IIs but I here it has
it's own MTA built in.
You can install Blat from the prompt. It needs
to be set up the same as your email client for
This can be easier than sending everything from
the command line. At least your send string will
Was Mail PassView of any help? Did it show the
SMTP server info?
Thanks for your help.
Using the NBI in my local machine works fine.
But when i use he in the windowsNT i have one a "page cannot be found", on status bar i see this address: http://127.0.0.1:4009/index.html
This windowsNT don´t have IIs installed, i test in other nt and the blat works fine.
Can you help me?
First I'm happy to hear that NBI has
been of some help to you. It's more
of a instructional tool than a production
When you run NBI it, hopefully, will give
you a better understanding of the relationship
between Blat and it's command line install
I don't enjoy building traditional GUI's
So I use a custom browser control and a portable
version of the Apache web server. When you get
a "page cannot be found" try right clicking
on the page and than click "refresh".
NBI relies on the core IE elements to work.
If the troublesome machine doesn't have the
browser installed on it NBI might not work.
Even if you don't get NBI to work you can still
do a command line Blat install. If your machines
are on the same network the -install or
-SaveSettings values will be the same.
Hope this clears up a few things for you.
