I need a program similar to America Online 8.0 or AOL 7.0. It will be a web browser and an email client. It must be written in Visual Basic 6.0, have an MDI Interface, and have the following abilities: (1). Send email in text or html format. It must be able to send multiple attachments and be compatible with Outlook Express 100%. (2). Receive email in text or html format. It must be able to handle multiple attachments and be compatible with Outlook Express 100%. MIME support. (3). Needs to be able to set itself as the default email client automatically and check for that on startup. And needs to respond to "mailto:" urls the same way Outlook Express does. (4). Browse the internet the same way Internet Explorer does it. Doesn't need to have FTP or anything special. Just needs to be able to browse the web. (5). If a user right clicks, and selects to "Open in a new window" or if a web site uses Pop ups, they must open in another mdi child window inside the program. (6). Needs to be able to set itself as the default web browser automatically and check for that on startup. And needs to respond to "http" urls the same Internet Explorer does it. (7). All this needs to be integrated into one program the same way America Online 7.0 or 80. does it. (8). All the menu functions that are in the screen shot. Although only the Email stuff(Check, Create) and the web browser stuff(web, search, address bar, favorites) must actually work. The other stuff, Chat and what not doesn't have to do anything. I have included three screen shots showing the sign on screen, main screen with the welcome screen, and the main screen with the browser running. Note: The sign on screen needs to load as an mdi child and doesn't need an authentication routine, I will add that later. The Email can use either pop3 or mapi but must be exactly like using AOLs email system. To put it simply, I need software that has the email, and web browsing features of AOL 7.0\8.0. Preferably 8.0.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete Visual Basic 6.0 source code of all work done. 2) All files required to create an installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
Windows 98SE, NT, 2000, XP.
