In a vb prog, I have to, from, subject and message textboxes.

If I press the button, this vb prog will bring up Ms Outlook and send
contents from those textboxes into
the fields in Ms Outlook. How do I do that ?

You could try something like this :

Set vMail as Outlook.Mailitem

vmail.subject = txtsubject.text
vmail.to = txtto.text
vmail.from = txtfrom.text
vmail.body  = txtbody.text

vmail.send

I think it should work.

I've been working on it some more and this seems to work :

dim vMail as clsmessage

Set vMail = New clsMessage
 vMail.Subject = 'subject text
 vMail.Body = 'Body text
 vMail.HeaderTo =  'email            
 vMail.Send
Set vMail = Nothing


The clsmessage looks as follows :


Public HeaderTo As String
Public HeaderFrom As String
Public Subject As String
Public Body As String

Private mMail As Outlook.MailItem
Private mOutlook As Outlook.Application

Public Sub Send()
    mMail.To = HeaderTo
    mMail.Subject = Subject
    mMail.Body = Body
   
    mMail.Send
End Sub

Public Property Get MailItem() As Outlook.MailItem
    Set MailItem = mMail
End Property

Public Property Set MailItem(aMailItem As Outlook.MailItem)
    Set mMail = aMailItem
End Property

Public Property Get Attachments() As Outlook.Attachments
    Set Attachments = mMail.Attachments
End Property

Public Property Set Attachments(aAttachments As Outlook.Attachments)
    Set mMail.Attachments = aAttachments
End Property

Private Sub Class_Initialize()
    Set mOutlook = New Outlook.Application
    Set mMail = mOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
End Sub

Private Sub Class_Terminate()
    Set mMail = Nothing
    Set mOutlook = Nothing
End Sub

You will probably not need all of this. It seems to work just fine.

What if I just want the field to be
copied and pasted into the Ms Outlook,
and not send the mail right away ?

>> So, I can type the body by myself,
   but the to, from and subject are  
   pasted.
