Don't use MAPI.

Goto PROJECT References and select:
  Microsoft Outlook x.0 Object Library

Goto VIEW Object Browser and select:
  Outlook (instead of <all libraries>

There you will see all your Methods, Collections, etc...

i already did tried that and thanks for the answer.
but there is a problem with that. when the outlook is open already, it is creating problems. so i think it's not a good idea to go that way. do you have any other ideas?
thanks,
vmano

Try to call API and insert Hyperlink. VB5 has these functions.
