  1. Re: Would VB6 be able to email someone if I had three text boxes on a form?

    Most examples will reference (IMAP? Can't remember the name) or a COM instance of Outlook to send an e-mail.

    Re: Winsock MultiConnection problem

    The client needs to send the data to the server, and then the server relays it to all other clients.

    No need for a loop at all. That's why Winsock is asynchronous and provides events.
