Re: Replacement for IPworks


I have used a few libraries:
Internet Mail Suite by Argosoft (I think this is no longer supported and
very old, but I mention it because it was a great library)
Indy 9,10

I can tell you without a doubt to get ICS and you will be pleased. The only
issue with it is the minimal documentation, but I haven't found it
bothersome. You'll find all kinds of neat uses for the asynchronous

I am not a fan of Indy and wish I had not developed anything with it. If it
wasn't such a monumental pain I would remove it from my applications.
