The Email id as configured by the user is required sometimes in the applications for e.g. which require to set the Email as pre-filled field in an editor or form etc.


Headers required:

#include "cemailaccounts.h"
#include "SMTPSET.H"

Link Against:

LIBRARY imcm.lib

Get the Count of SMTP accounts configured on device & fetch the default one or if there are more then one then pass the index

  CEmailAccounts* mailAccount = CEmailAccounts::NewLC(); 
RArray<TSmtpAccount> accountsSmtp(3);
TInt icountAccnt = accountsSmtp.Count();
iSmtpSettings = new(ELeave)CImSmtpSettings; // in class header : CImSmtpSettings*iSmtpSettings;
TSmtpAccount iSmtpAccount;
const TSmtpAccount &iSmtpAccount= accountsSmtp.operator [](0); /// pass here the index
iUserEmailId.Copy(iSmtpSettings->EmailAddress()); // iUserEmailId will contain the mail id as configured by the user
/// do your error handling here
