The most reliable way to send E-mails and faxes from your applications!

What's new in version 2.1.1 ?

DirectEmail is a cross-platform, easy to use Scripting Xtra for Macromedia Director, Authorware and Shockwave that provides applications with the ability to reliably send e-mails, send faxes as well as validate e-mail addresses.

Emails can be sent in either plain text or rich HTML format, in various languages, and can include file attachments.

DirectEmail Xtra provides applications with the most reliable way to send e-mails. The Xtra does not depend on any other external application and can send e-mails with or without relaying through a mail server as long as there is an active Internet connection.
Furthermore, the Xtra provides applications with precise error information in case of any failure in the e-mail or fax delivery, allowing applications to act appropriately hence insuring that no e-mails or faxes will get lost.

DirectEmail Xtra can send e-mails through a relaying mail server or take on the role of a mail server and deliver e-mails directly to the recipient's email account.

The Xtra is available for Director 5 and above, Authorware 4 and above,  and is compatible with Windows 9X and newer (including 2000, ME, NT, XP) as well as MacOS 8, 9 and X.

DirectEmail Xtra is Shockwave safe and therefore it can also be used with Shockwave 7 or newer and when safety features in Director are turned on.

When the Xtra is in safe mode it can attach files to the e-mail from anywhere in the local machine through a built-in file selection dialog box, or directly from the Shockwave support folder (dswMedia folder) or any other local dswMedia folder without displaying a dialog box.

An auto downloadable Shockwave safe package of DirectEmail Xtra is also available. It is a compressed, small sized (about 30K) version of the Xtra, that can be downloaded automatically from a web site to the user's local machine whenever needed, and once installed provides Shockwave applications on the web with the ability to send e-mails and faxes.

DirectEmail Xtra is fully compliant with RFC 2821 and other related RFCs.


Increase reliability with a DirectSMTP Account

Sending e-mails through a relaying mail server is the fastest and most reliable way to send e-mails.

Developers interested in sending emails from their applications through a relaying mail server, but do not have a server to relay on, can sign on for a DirectSMTP account. For a small monthly fee, a DirectSMTP account allows developers to send emails from their applications by relaying through DirectXtras mail servers. The relaying server allows applications to send e-mails from any e-mail account to any e-mail account without limitations. 

Please refer to the 'Discussion About Mail Servers' section in the Xtra documentation for more information about DirectSMTP accounts as well a discussion about sending e-mails through a relaying mail server or directly to the recipient's email account.
