Re: [ROOT] Send eMails...

You must be kidding :-)))

No, just kidding. A few years ago were being accused of doing everything
in ROOT, and that in the next version we will send email from TObject
and turn on the coffee machine.

I think it might nice to have a SMTP class that allows one to send email
for reporting (but not in TObject :-)). Maybe for the time being you
could survive with using TSystem::OpenPipe() to send a mail message
using "/bin/mail".

If you mail me a TSMPT (TMail) I will consider it.

Cheers, Fons.
