Dear subho,

Unfortunately, there's no direct support for MMS available with Windows Mobile. But, we can use some 3rd party tools to get this solved.

Actually, this topic had been discussed before. For more information, please see the link below:

Hi subho,

"send via web through my application ": Does this mean that, the mms (multimedia message service) message created in your application will be sent through internet If so, we cannot achieve this directly. We need the help from mms service provider, and also, there are no API we can use.

Thanks!

Dear subho,

Since your Pocket PC is based on windows mobile 2003, we cannot implement this functionality with ease. There's no managed class support it, and the class used to send an email is only supported on windows mobile 5.0 or later version.

But we can still use MAPI with native C++. We can dig in detail on IMessage and IMAPIFolder interfaces.

  1. IMAPIFolder::CreateMessage() // use this to create a new email
  2. IMessage::CreateAttach() // use this to create an attatchment

For more information, see : http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms837571.aspx

Hope this can help you. If this is not what you want, let's go on further discussion. Thanks!

Messaging API (MAPI) can be used in .net (C#) or not

Dear subho,

MAPI cannot be used in .net with ease, since it is a COM. It is not easy for ourselves to write a wrapper for it. But you can use other 3rd party class library to achieve this, Individually, I recommend, InTheHand has managed class for it.

See InTheHand library: http://32feet.net/library/index.htm

InTheHand.WindowsMobile.PocketOutlook.EmailMessage class.

Hope this can help you.

Thanks!
