Here 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.

Mirkwood,Thanks for the reply.

Question: Are the "subject" and "text" objects string variables? How can I set the "text" object to point to a text file?

DO you mean "add an attachment" or you want to use a file as source for your email.

I think you mean the second and in that case I have to disappoint you. You just have to read the file and copy it to the text property.
