Buddylist?

Postby MonTheHoops » Fri Jul 04, 2008 5:30 am

Is this feature currently active and what is supposed to happen when you add people to your list?

Also does the create email invitation button work for others? Nothing happens for me.

Cheers

The buddy list is for sending an email invitation out to specific people with a direct link back to your game server. It currently launches your default email client to compose, modify, and send the message. So if you're running on a dedicated server you probably don't have an email client installed there. Eventually I'm going to switch that over to internal SMTP commands so an email client won't be needed.

I have just installed Thunderbird onto the server to utilise the Email Invitation function but the button still does nothing for me at all...I tried restarting the server and checking that Thunderbird is regged as the default email client but still no success, has anyone else used this function yet and did it work ok for you?

If you go to a web site with a mailto link like the one in my signature below, does it launch your email client and start composing a message?

Yes it does mate, it opens a window to write a new email...but the button on the Poker does nothing.

I just tried in on my system and it calls up my Mozilla email client. If you run IE and then select Tools|Internet Options on the menu, and then select the Programs tab, does it have an entry for "E-mail"?

Hopefully others reading this will try it and chime in here with what it does for them.

I have checked in both IE and Firefox and the email client is listed as Thunderbird, but the button depresses but does nothing else, I highlight one or multiple and even all email address in the buddylist but still nothing, I was hoping someone else would chirp in as well, that way we can see if it is a wider problem or local for me only.

I just tried the buddy list feature and it seemed to work as advertised. I am running Poker Mavens on a dedicated Windows 2003 server box from home. It has Outlook express on it. I just configure OE with the proper pop and smtp settings and everything work like it was supposed to. I received an invitation email with the server address. :)

I'll create a little test program for you that checks for an error code and we'll see what it says. I'll send you a link when I have that ready.

Ok, try this test program. It's supposed to start your email client and address a message to me with a popup message that says "Success". Otherwise it should return an error message as to why it didn't work:

FYI, here's the Delphi source snippet code for that:

Code: Select all
 
s:='MailTo:[email protected]';
s:=s+'?Subject=Test';
s:=s+'&Body=Test Message';
r:=ShellExecute(0,'open',pchar(s),nil,nil,sw_shownormal);
