The hMailServer COM API lets you write your own scripts and applications that integrate with hMailServer. Almost all objects in hMailServer are accessible using the COM library. As an example, both hMailServer Administrator and the PHP WebAdmin is entirely based upon the COM library. Besides writing application like theese two, you can write scripts that are automatically run when certain events take place. For example, you can write a script that filters messages before they are delivered to the recipients.
The Application object is the root object in hMailServers COM model. Using this object, you can access all hMailServer objects and settings. Before accessing any of the properties and methods on the Application object, you must call Application.Authenticate with valid credentials.
The hMailServer API behaves as most other COM APIs, but there are some special behavior which relates to exception handling and permissions.
It is possible to create triggers in hMailServer. Triggers are script which are executed when certain actions occur. Triggers are created by adding the script to the EventHandlers-file in the hMailServer Events folder.
These are the basic steps to perform when you want to access the hMailServer COM API.
