NSMailDelivery now in deprecation w/Leopard

  • I am successfully using NSMailDelivery API under Tiger.

    But I have noticed its' deprecation under Leopard. The doc's are very
    thin on NSMailDelivery and do not mention the alternatives, if any.

    Has Apple taken away my (Cocoa) ability to programmatically email
    with attachments, in the background, with no alternative provided?

    Thanks for your answers in advance.

    If I remember correctly, NSMailDelivery was never really intended to
    be used by 3rd parties, people just started to use it because it was
    there.

    You might want to check out EDMessage in http://www.mulle-
    kybernetik.com/software/EDFrameworks/ instead.
  • I thought the new Apple Scripting Bridge was intended to make it
    easier to do things like send mail through the Apple Mail Application.

  • Excellent - thanks for the great tip. Now I just need to figure out
    how to add
    a 3rd part framework to my dev environment ;-)

    ALSO, I will look into this, though my application doesn't want to
    involve Mail
    or any other email client on the sending side. It just expects to
    talk to an SMTP
    server in the background. Recipients of email attachment will be
    expected to
    receive (using any mail client), detach and double click attachment,
    to run
    my application which will decode attachment.

    Yeah, if you want to use Mail.app and/or go through a scripting
    language it does indeed do this.  For some reason I don't think you
    should have to do either of these things to send an email from a
    Cocoa app.

    Time to file a bug.

  • I've been using SMTPMailDelivery, which is part of Claus Broch's
    ILCrashReporter for this.

    Seems to work pretty well, although there's no SSL support ...
