If you are using Outlook as an Email program you can do the following:
First set a Reference to the Outlook 98 Type library(Project...References)

On your Form_Unload event:

Private Form_Unload

Dim appObj As New Outlook.Application
Dim itemObj As Object

On Error Resume Next

Set itemObj = appObj.CreateItem(olMailItem)

itemObj.To = "someemail@somewhere"

itemObj.Body = "This is the body of the
message"

itemObj.Subject = "This is the Subject"

itemObj.Send

Set itemObj = Nothing
Set appObj = Nothing

End Sub

Hopes this helps!!!

Use the EE search option and look for SMTP. You will have plenty of examples.

I assume I could also attach a file to the mail message.  Do you know what the command would be?

Thanks.

Yes you can attach a file to the email message: Add the following to the previous code:

Dim attObj As Outlook.Attachment

Set attObj = itemObj.Attachments.Add(attName)

**Where attName is the full path of the file you are attaching.**

If you have any trouble let me know.
