Is it possible to make an autohotkey script (gui window or button) send information to an online source. I know that a script can get information from the web, but can it upload information or send emails?

Depending on your need, there are numerous ways to achieve this.

I use Blat command line mail sender to send mails, and the built in Windows FTP console client to upload files using FTP.

If you are looking to upload content to a site with an "upload" button, thats something I have not attempted, so cant help you there.

You use the Run or RunWait commands to execute the external application.

Check out this page for a simple tutorial on the MailTo command. I use it for a series of routines I employ daily.

Hope that helps :)

The MailTo command activates the default email client. I haven't tried to do so by any other method.

I am trying to create a script that essentiall enables a user to drag a document onto a compiled AHK script and run a mailto line from outlook but I also want to attach the document that was used to drag n drop on the icon to start the process.

Any ideas or direction would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but is it possible to send an email securely with BLAT.exe?

Also, how do you carriage return for the subject line?
