Umm, an email library that does what?

Do you mean sending an email using an arduino and ethernet shield?

yes, I saw the threads, but they do not talk about an existing library, that's why I'm asking.

Webmeister

You did not describe what you want to do.

You do not always need a library. You can program a sketch without it  ;)

So... what exactly do you want to do?

jumpjack

Of course, sending an email upon an "event" (i.e. specific input).
But aI read about complexity due to authentication and encryption, so I really need a library... ::)

You are probably better off using an intermediate server (or proxy).  You could have a small script running on a web server that the Arduino sends a request to.  The script could then generate and send the email for you.  The overhead to form a HTTP request (and send it) is far smaller than communicating with an SMTP server.

Thanks for your help, but if nobody has info about SMTP libraries, I think I' ll be "forced" by moderators to ask in the other threads.  :(

Well, roll your won lib, you will learn a lot that way.
