Can someone translate this into Masm? I have a program to send mail messages, Messages are first put into my "Outbox". Then it should check if the computer is online, if so, send. If not, then wait and keep checking. I came across this code. But it is in Tasm style and does not work for me. If anyone could please translate, i'll be thankful! Thank you. -J44
