MAPI is fairly simple to use. Here is code that I use in a large project that handles EMail. Just add the MAPI session and MAPI Message controls to your app and name them like I did. GOOD LUCK!
Read the help on MAPI to get the command for attaching your picture files.

mpsSession.SignOn
mpmMessage.SessionID = mpsSession.SessionID
mpmMessage.Compose
mpmMessage.RecipAddress = "EMAIL ADDRESS HERE"    mpmMessage.MsgSubject = "Subject text here"
mpmMessage.MsgNoteText = Text1     'Assumes Text1 has message
mpmMessage.Send False

I am really in a bind here.  This part of VB is real new to me and I am having trouble getting it to work.  Could you please show me a simple set of code to open MAPI and attach the folder c:\pictures to the email address that is selected in the "address" listbox.  This will happen when the user clicks the "send pictures" command button.  What this program does(supposed to) is when the user selects the folder and a name in the list box the persons email address(not displayed) is to be sent to the MAPI and that folder of pictures is attached to an email message and sent.  the subject of the message will be read in from text3.  I hope this is enough to answer any questions.  but let me know if you need more.

TIA
