    how to send an email using C/C++ with Auth Gmail Account

    Hello,
    I want to simply send email using C or C++.
    I have tried so many examples and sample codes but they didn effect..

    I hv tried to use the google smtp like a smtp replay(i mean pushed through the gmails smtp relay) but gmail is rejecting my IP address and says like this

    Code:
    The IP you're using to send mail is not authorized to send email directly to our servers. Please use the SMTP relay at your service provider instead. Learn more at http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answequit               
    .
    Can anyone tell me how to use separate Gmail account authorization and work with this Email thing with C/C++ code..(I mean suppose I have an Gmail Account called test@gmail.com, I hv done this using Java.. Java allow to send emails through that authorized gmail account- by giving username and passwords to the Java code)
    I want to get this work on Windows platform..

    how to do this using C/C++?
    pls help me guyz.
    thanks

    Did you read that error message? Even a little bit?

    The first part is important, because, well, that tells us you don't work for Google. You will need to use the SMTP you actually are authenticated to use, which is not Google's.

    The last part is important, because it indicates that you don't know how to use send/recv -- just because you get some data, does not mean you got all the data, as you can tell by that URL getting cut off.

    Have you read a good networking tutorial, like Beej's?

    If you've done it with Java, then you already know how to do it -- if you need to do it, which if you've done it with Java, you don't.

    The method you need to solve your problem is to not be an idiot, and we can't help you with that.

    See... that's the problem with scoop and poop code... you don't actually know how it works and when it doesn't work you end up here begging for help and looking like an idiot.

    Well perhaps if you read the code you just appropriated, you would see this
    dest_addr.sin_port= htons(25); /* PORT defined above */

    Whereas your putative working Java code says this
    props.put("mail.smtp.port", "587");

    Here's more fun and amusement.
    port 587 - Google Search
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Not to mention that your Java code at least acknowledges the necessity of "authentication", unlike your C code which just connects to the server (although it does give a bogus HELO command, so points there).

    (EDIT: And not to mention Google requires some sort of secure connection as well, and not just a plain network connection, which is going to be even more work.)
