I do this using the two MAPI controls that come with vb so its only a few lines of code to do it - The link above seems quite alot of code. If you want the code let me know.

Here's 2 mail examples.


Description: Write an e-mail client in no time! BuzMail is an 'overlay' to the MSMAPI controls provided with VB, in the form of a mail 'object' and various functions etc. It allows the user to send and receive e-mails with or without attachments without having to work out how to use the un-user friendly MSMAPI controls.


     This is a dynamic link library that sends and receives electronic mail from a MAPI compliant email client. It comes complete with error checking and multiple attachments

That's it!
