My program reads and saves emails using mapi controls. But for me to run my program I have to have microsoft outlook or exchange running on my desktop. If I don't have a session running, the program doesn't work and gives error. How do I eliminate this problem?
thanks,
osho

Are you using the MAPI controls provided wihth VB6?

In this case, I suppose you are using a MAPI Session control. Try to set its NewSession property to true.

(The NewSession property specifies whether a new mail session should be established. If a valid session is already established, setting the NewSession property will allow two sessions to run concurrently).

Yes, I am using Mapi with VB6. I tried your modification but still it doesn't work. Please let me know if you think there is any other reason. Thanks

This works for me:

Mapi.DownloadMail = False
Mapi.NewSession = True
Mapi.LogonUI = False
Mapi.UserName = strLogonId
Mapi.Password = strPassword
Mapi.SignOn

It seems to ignore the password though, so set that to blank.  The password could be your problem, make sure the account can be opened OK without having to enter a password.
