You can try this code to send mail with attachment.
I think that's you want

Private Sub Command1_Click()
 
MAPISession1.SignOn
With MAPIMessages1
..MsgIndex = -1
..RecipDisplayName = "detiege@ceb.be"
' Recipient adress

..MsgSubject = "SUJET" ' Subject
..MsgNoteText = "Line 1" + vbCrLf + "Line 2"
' Message
..SessionID = MAPISession1.SessionID
           
..AttachmentIndex = 0
..AttachmentPathName = "C:\config.sys"
' File Path

..AttachmentPosition =
Len(.MsgNoteText) - 1
..AttachmentType = 0
..ResolveName
           
..AttachmentIndex = 1
..AttachmentPathName =
"C:\config.dos" ' File Path
..AttachmentPosition =
Len(.MsgNoteText) - 1
..AttachmentType = 0
..ResolveName
           
..Send
End With
MAPISession1.SignOff
 
End Sub

Sorry, I have to reject this answer. It may be because the answer was incomplete. What I really need is how to send it WITHOUT USING MAPI.

I actually send the mail using WinSock. The only problem with using that is it treat everything as text. If you try to attach something to your mail and send it, the mail becomes garbage (the attached part that is).

Detigie, there is a bug in your solution. Your code will only work with Outlook Express. If you try using the same code and your MAPI app is Outlook, it would die with error the error "Unspecified Error has occured". To work around this, try padding an extra space after the message text.

Thanks anyway!

Thanks. I'll use the code as my foundation and build from it.
