Wow sdbanks, not a good habbit to post the answer to the question... Especially if this answer will decrease points of one who asked...

Be careful, clicking provided link will decrease your points.

Provided example in fact use SMTP directly and is right, of course.

Now one another way - the way if you want to use installed mailer to initiate e-mail:

Public 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

then use

ShellExecute 0, "open", "mailto:crin@mail.com", "", "", 1

or any e-mail address you like (or variable) instead the "mailto:crin@mail.com" :))

Sincerely yours,

Crin
