With VB6 you don't need to use Groupwise ActiveX control. You can still use MAPI control which has enough sample & docs.

To send the mail using Groupwise you need to set the active profile to Groupwise. Goto Control Panel->Mails->Set Profile.

Or you can select the profile when MAPI tries to send the mail as well.

If you need any sample for MAPI please let me know.

Thanks for accepting my comment.

Have you managed to create the profile?

If so in VB6 there was a sample. Goto the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\M...\Samples folder under that you will find a folder named VBMail. That gives a demo on using MAPI.

If you have any problems or if you need any other samples please let me know.
