This should do the trick:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim objOutlook As Object
Dim objMail As Object

    Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set objMail = objOutlook.CreateItem(0)
       
    With objMail
        .To = "bill.gates@microsoft.com"
        .Subject = "MyTestMail"
        .Body = "This is the text."
        .Send
    End With
   
    Set objMail = Nothing
    Set objOutlook = Nothing
   
End Sub

D'Mzzl!

That won't work because Outlook Express does not expose a useful object hierarchy like Outlook.  Here is an example that shows how to send mail using the MAPI controls that come with VB.  This will work with outlook express which is a simple mapi client (this is the only way to automate Outlook Express.)
