// Important: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.68 or greater.

// This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
// See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

Chilkat.Http http = new Chilkat.Http();

// Use your previously obtained access token here:
// See the following examples for getting an access token:
//    Get Microsoft Graph OAuth2 Access Token (Azure AD v2.0 Endpoint).
//    Get Microsoft Graph OAuth2 Access Token (Azure AD Endpoint).
//    Refresh Access Token (Azure AD v2.0 Endpoint).
//    Refresh Access Token (Azure AD Endpoint).

// To send mail, we'll POST to the following endpoint:
// 
// POST /users/{id | userPrincipalName}/sendMail
// 
// (The special keyword "me" may be used in place of a principal name.)
// 

// This example will send HTML email containing the following HTML body.
