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
