I want to have a activex control which can be used to submit a form directly to a mail server without the mail compose dialog box.This is a MS-Exchange mail server.I am a VB -5 programmer and will appreciate if u can tell me how to start making such an ActiveX control and also if it is available on the net ,plese do direct me there.if ur telling me to do I would appreciate if u tell me some books to read also for MAPI programming.

I will incease the point to at least 100 and grade it if i get an appropriate answer.

ere is an example of using OLE Messaging to send a message:

Dim oSession As Object
 
Set oSession = CreateObject("MAPI.Session")
oSession.Logon "MS Exchange Settings", True
Dim objMessage As Object ' Message object
Dim objOneRecip As Object ' Recipient object
 
If oSession Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "You have to log on first...."
Exit Sub
End If
 
Set objMessage = oSession.Outbox.Messages.Add
' create the recipient
Set objOneRecip = objMessage.Recipients.Add
objOneRecip.Name = "Rickcau@Microsoft.com"
objOneRecip.Type = mapiTo
objOneRecip.Resolve (True) 'Show dialog to resolve ambiguities
With objMessage ' message object
subject = "Test MAPI/OLE VB Message w/ole object - explicit"
Text = "Like you really wanted this ... please delete this test"
End With
' send the message
objMessage.Send showDialog:=False

For more information on direct MAPI calls and OLE Messaging, in the MSDN Library, see the book Win32 Messaging API (MAPI) in the Win32 SDK.
