Connect to Mailtraq fromMS Access

Postby salmoles » Thu Feb 14th, 2008 8:26am

I have developed a MS Access application and will need to actively create and delete users from within Access. Is there an API (COM or otherwise) or a method to connect to Mailtraq from where I can run scripts etc.
Failing that, what would be the way in which I could send scripts to Mailtraq from my Access application
Kind regards
Les

Mailtraq has a com control which you can interact with in all the usual ways. There's probably more detail on [url]http://www.mailtraq.com[/url] but this, from my website, should be enough to get you started [url]http://www.rdns.org/mailtraq/help/scriptref.html[/url]

You an also use dde to run scripts via Mailtraq's inbuilt dde server if Access has a usable dde client. See [url]http://www.rdns.org/mailtraq/perl/dde-test.pl[/url] for an example written in perl which gives you the required syntax.
