I am trying to send an email from a VB form, I have tried to do it a million times but most of the code that i have found is very complicated. I need something that is simple and easy to understand. The only fields that am using are TO,Subject and message.I prefer using either outlook objects or CDO whichever works.

you can use MAPI Controls comming with VB6
add component MAPI Contols.
then use MAPI Session and MAPI Message controls to send what ever the messages you wants to send.


there is a good sample project comes with MSDN.
its located in <MSDN Path>\98VS\1033\SAMPLES\VB98\misc\Vbmail folder

ex. in my machine it's
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MSDN98\98VS\1033\SAMPLES\VB98\misc\Vbmail

have a look

Add Microsoft Outlook to your references:

  Dim x As Outlook.MailItem
  Dim a As Outlook.Application
   
  Set a = New Outlook.Application 'using an open session or loggin on using the default profile
  Set x = a.CreateItem(olMailItem)
  x.To = "Hengel@tecsys.lu"
  x.Subject = "Mail using outlook"
  x.Body = "This is the text to send"
send"
  x.Send
  a.Quit
  Set x = Nothing
  Set a = Nothing
