OLE automation and MAPI-problems

HI folks!

1. I have been trying to get Brad Wist's sourcecode about sending faxes and mail, to work.

I have the typelibrary for OLE Messaging 1.0 but when I try to run the following lines..

Dim objSession As Object

 Set objSession = GetObject("MAPI.SESSION")

I get "Runtime Error '429' OLE Automation server can't create object" .

I have searched the registry for a reference to MAPI.SESSION, but no luck. Why does'nt this work?
I have the MAPI32.DLL installed. How come "MAPI.SESSION" is not registered.
Am I missing a DLL?


2 Is there a text/help file somewhere with documentation for the MAPI.DLL and its functions?

In looking for a running instance, I think the syntax is:

set objsession=GetObject(,"MAPI.SESSION")

Note the comma, missing form your sample code

Fair enough!

My question did not say so, but I tried "CreateObject" and the error in the "GetObject" syntax was a typing mistake. I am afraid I still don't know which DLL is the OLEMessaging Server.  -  But it is not your fault that I did not describe this problem properly. So, please have these points, and ...

... happy programming! It's fun :-)

When attempting to connect to an existing instance of the MAPI session you would use the following code:

Set objSession = GetObject("", "MAPI.Session")

or, to create a new instance:

Set objSession = CreateObject("MAPI.Session")

The DLL you are looking for is call OLEMSG32.DLL, in the SYS directory.
