Hi!
I customized a Contact form,I add a lot of fields on it like "To", "Subject" fields and a button.  On the click event of this button I want to send this Item(the contact form that I modified).  But I don't know how to add this Item to the MailItem.  Also I don't how to add the control "To" (textbox) to the recipients of this MailItem.
Here is my code maybe you could help me!
tanks

sub cmbSend_Click()
     Set objOA = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
     Set objObject = objOA.CreateItem(olContactItem)
     Set objThisPage = Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages("CustomerForm")
     Set colControls = objThisPage.Controls
     Set objMail = objOA.CreateItem(olMailItem)
     objMail.Attachments.Add Item
     'objMail.Recipients = colControls("txtTo")
     'objMail.Recipients.Add "michelc@biotonix.com"
     objMail.To = colControls("txtTo")
     objMail.Subject = colControls("txtSubject")
     objMail.Send
end sub

The ContactItem object exposes a SaveAs method that will allow you to save the item to the file system as an "olMsg".  If you save the contact to a predefined place on the file system, you can use the Attachtement.Add routine.
