Answer: How do I send E-mail via Microsoft exchange server from my Perl Program?
contributed by Roger

To send E-mail via the Microsoft exchange server, you need to use the MAPI interface. I have created an example below to send Email via exchange server:

use Win32::OLE; use strict; # Create a new MAPI session my $session = Win32::OLE->new("MAPI.Session") or die "Failed to create a new MAPI Session!"; # Logon to server my $res = $session->Logon("roger", "letmepass"); die "Could not log on to exchange server!" if ($res); # Create a new message my $msg = $session->Outbox->Messages->Add(); # Add the recipient and resolve the address my $recipient = $msg->Recipients->Add(); $recipient->{Name} = ""; $recipient->Resolve(); # Add your text $msg->{Subject} = "Email Test"; $msg->{Text} = qq/ Email test .... will this work? Regards Roger /; # Send the email $msg->Update(); $msg->Send(0, 0, 0); # Log off $session->Logoff();
