Hi all
I have written a program that uses a com object to send e-mails.

The program has been working great.
When I converted this program to a nt-service the program didn't work.
The dispatch method returned false.
I don't understand what happened since
I ran both programs on the same machine.

Could someone help me?

(Note: I have limited knowledge in com so please take this into consideration while answering me)
