We have a very old VFP application which uses File Version 4.6.8.0 of wwipstuff.dll in conjuction with wwipstuff.vcx

When we invoke wwipstuff.SendMail / wwipstuff.SendMailAsync without a value for the SendEmail parameter the email goes out with from sender email address that looks like UserName @ UserDomain (which is not a valid email address)

Is that way to obtain the mail or userPrincipalName attribute from AD instead (either with the existing component or an upgraded version thereof)?

No that's not supported in old versions.

I recently (in 7.22 I believe) added support for using Windows user credentials, for SMTP emails, although I'm never sure exactly what that does. I suppose this only works with Exchange or anything else that accepts Windows Account ACLs as validation via cUsername as LOCALACCOUNT.

Thanks for looking into this.

We still run VFP 8 (I know...). Your site says "Web Connection 7.x (and 6.x) supports only Visual FoxPro 9.0 to run." so I guess we'll need to roll our own.

VFP8 probably works for wwSmtp.

We just no longer test for anything other than VFP9, but most features work fine in 8 and probably 7, and the few places that need fixing often have older replacements. wwSmtp probably works because it mostly defers to .NET for the actual email code so the Fox code is pretty light.

We licensed your product a VERY long time ago. To be honest I don't even know what product(s) we licensed.
What would be involved in getting a new version?

Contact me privately to see if we can find a license for you to ugprade.

Product ugprades:

There are shareware versions for Client Tools and Web Connection you can try to see what breaks with VFP8 but you can't fix because there's no source code with those. Full versions come with source so can be tweaked.
