Automatic e-mail with attachments

Using Lotus Notes 4.61
I want to create an agent which does the following.

Create and Send an e-mail message to a predefind group of users which adds an attachment to the message.  The attachment will reside on a network drive. I want the agent to create the message , create the attachment from the network drive and e-mail it out

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Adamc,

Use the code below in agent,  Change the values inside <<<>>> where ever applicable.

Good Luck,



     Dim ss As New notessession
     Dim db As notesdatabase
     Dim doc As notesdocument
     Dim rtitem As notesrichtextitem
     Dim object As NotesEmbeddedObject
     Set db = ss.currentdatabase
     Set doc = db.CreateDocument
     doc.SendTo = "<<<<GroupName>>>>"
     doc.Subject = "<<<<THE SUBJECT OF YOUR MESSAGE>>>>"
     doc.Form = "Memo"
     Set rtitem = New notesRichTextItem (doc,"Body")
     Call rtitem.AppendText( "<<<<<<<<<<<<Any Text message as the content of the mail.>>>>>>>>>>>>>" )
     Set object = rtitem.EmbedObject ( EMBED_ATTACHMENT, "", "<<<<<<<<<c:\jim.sam>>>>>>>>>>>>", "<<<<<<<ANY TEXT -- OPTIONAL>>>>>>>" )
     Call doc.Send(False)
