Failed to start the SQL Mail Session

I am running SQL Server 6.5 under Windows NT 4.0. I tried starting SQL Mail and got the following error:

Error:17952, Severity. 18, State: 1
Failed to start SQL Mail session
OS Error: 126, The specified module could not be found

How can this error be resolved?  I am fairly certain that SQL Mail was installed.  As a matter of fact, I don't even remember that being optional.

Have you installed MS Outlook?

You must install Outlook and login to the NT server as the acount that SQL server and Executive are running, create a mail profile and test it. Then the SQL mail will work.

I must say that I do not like it.

I have not installed outlook.  I only have outlook express installed.  In any case, I will not be able to test your solution now since I am away from the server today.  Please bear with me until tomorrow when I will be able to respond to you and give you your points.
