;;; Commentary:

;; Even though I have to use MS Outlook at work I like writing my
;; e-mails in a normal *mail* buffer in Emacs. I usually copy and
;; paste the text from there into the mail. One day I got tired of
;; that and hacked together this little package.
;;
;; It uses MAPI to send a message by fetching information from a
;; normal *mail* buffer to build some vbscript code that is executed
;; by wscript.exe.
;;

;;; Prerequisites:

;;
;; * MAPI must be working on your machine
;;
;; * It needs wscript.exe to be able to execute the vbscript doing the
;;   actual work.
;;

;;; Usage:

;; Open up a mail buffer (C-x m).
;; Add one or more recipients, a subject and a body.
;; Execute it: M-x w32-send-mapi.

;;; History:

;; Version 0.3, 2007-07-04
;; * Added w32-send-mapi-send
;; * Added w32-send-mapi-send-region

;; Version 0.2, 2005-03-07
;; * Fixed some things after suggestions from Reiner Steib.
;; * Used `format' instead of a lot of calls to `insert'.
;; * Replaced "Chr(13) & Chr(10)" with "vbCrLf" in generated code

;; Version 0.1, 2005-03-07
;; * First release.

;;; Bugs:

;; Probably a bunch of them.

  ' Recipient names inserted here

  ' valid e-mail addresses before the mail is sent.

  ' Catch error which is thrown by the Send method if user
  ' cancels mail
