I simply need to create one mail message and mail it to a distribution list.

The dist list is read in from a file, the msg body is stored in a string variable.

Can someone show me some vba code to create an outlook instance, insert the names into the "To:" field, Insert the msg and send the letter.

Use the following code :-

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long


Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim x As Long
 x = ShellExecute(Form1.hwnd, "Open", "Mailto:someone@somewhere.com?Subject=Happy Birthday", " ", " ", 1)
End Sub



Thats all :)

This is how you would go about it.

Dim appObj As New Outlook.Application
Dim itemObj As Object


Set itemObj = appObj.CreateItem(olMailItem)
itemObj.To = "To your dist list."
itemObj.Body = "Here is the body of the message"
itemObj.Subject = "Here is the Subject"
itemObj.Send

Set itemObj = Nothing
Set appObj = Nothing
