Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
Private Const SW_SHOW = 5

Public Sub WebLaunch(ByVal URL As String, Optional Browser As String)
    If IsMissing(Browser) Or Browser = Empty Then
        ShellExecute frmMain.hwnd, "open", URL, vbNullString, vbNullString, SW_SHOW
    Else
        ShellExecute frmMain.hwnd, "open", Browser, URL, vbNullString, SW_SHOW
    End If
End Function


This will launch the default browser or the specified browser with your URL. If you want to email, use this: "mailto:folk@popmail.com", and the system will open the default mail program, ex.: WebLaunch "mailto:folk@popmail.com", and for URL: WebLaunch "http://www.winamp.com".

If you need more help, just ask...
