a very basic program would be as follows:

Private Sub sendwitham()
Dim osession As Object
Dim omessage As Message


On Error Resume Next
Set osession = CreateObject("mapi.session")
If osession Is Nothing Then
Exit Sub
End If
osession.Logon
'If Err Then Exit Sub
Set omessage = osession.Outbox.Messages.Add
With omessage
Subject = txtsubject'this is a text box can also be hardcoded
Text = " " & txtnotetxt'text box can be hardcoded such as "hi"
End With

With omessage.Recipients.Add
Name = "email address"' can be also be text box

Type = mapiTo
Resolve
End With
If Len(txtattach) Then
With omessage.Attachments.Add
Position = 1
Type = mapiFileData
Name = txtattach' full path of file goes in this text box can be hardcoded too.
ReadFromFile txtattach
End With
End If
omessage.Send
osession.Logoff
MsgBox ("DONE")'optional


End Sub





Private Sub Command1_Click()
call sendwitham

End Sub

The system is reporting an error since it does not recognize the MESSAGE type in the second DIM statement.
Shall I have to put some other code into a Module to set the Message type?

Thanks
