This procedure explains how to run SMTP component from NAV 5.0 in older versions. This was tested in Navision 4.0 SP3. Not all countries had NAV 5.0 a localized release.
If you don’t want this manual procedure of registering components you could also install NAV 5.0 client in same computer you are running NAV 4.0 SP3.
1 – Copy “Microsoft.Navision.Mail.dll” and “Microsoft.Navision.Mail.tlb” from NAV 5.0 installation CD to NAV 4.0 client folder.
2 – You need to run regasmexe. This tool is located in “C:\Program Files\Tools;C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727”. When you run this tool you could add it to windows path or insert full path when running.
3 – In Navision client folder execute regasm Microsoft.Navision.Mail.dll /tlb:Microsoft.Navision.Mail.tlb
4 – Export fowling objects from NA 5.0 to NAV 4.0
Form – 409 SMTP Mail Setup
Codeunit – 400 - SMTP Mail
Table – 409 - SMTP Mail Setup
Now you can use codeunit SMTP Mail to send e-mails instead of using 3rd party components or writing new one in .NET.
The most common cause is mail server anti-spam is blocking emails.
I tried this and it seems to send ok, but no mails arrived ?
You must use another component. This component doesn’t support SSL.
hi, how do you authenticate if your mail server requires ssl?
