I am trying to send an email using the following code:

Private Sub SendMailx(Address As String, _
                      Subject As String, _
                      Body As String, _
                      FilePath As String)
 Dim suc As Long
 Dim SesID As Long
 Dim Msg As MapiMessage
 Dim Recips(0) As MapiRecip
 Dim Attach(0) As MAPIfile
   
    suc = MAPIResolveName(0, 0, Address, 0, 0, Recips(0))
    If suc <> SUCCESS_SUCCESS Then
        MsgBox "Recipient not found..."
    End If
   
    With Msg
        .Reserved = 0
        .Subject = Subject
        .NoteText = Body
        .MessageType = vbNullString
        .DateReceived = vbNullString
        .ConversationID = vbNullString
        .Flags = 0
        .RecipCount = 1
        .FileCount = 1
    End With
   
    With Attach(0)
        .Reserved = 0
        .Flags = MAPI_OLE_STATIC
        .PathName = FilePath
        .FileName = "test.txt"
        .FileType = "Text File"
    End With
   
    suc = MAPISendMail(0, 0, Msg, Recips(0), _
          Attach(0), 0, 0)
    If suc <> SUCCESS_SUCCESS Then
        MsgBox "Unable to send Mail:" + Format(suc)
    End If
End Sub

I Call this sub like this:
SendMailx "v-riaanm@microsoft.com", "testing123", _  
   "please find the file attatched", "c:\test.txt"

Now I checked about 100 times that c:\test.txt exists, but when calling MAPISendMail I get the return code:11 (MAPI_E_ATTACHMENT_NOT_FOUND)

Could someone please help me solve this?

Try this:
Public Function send_mail(sendto As String, subject As String, _
 text As String) As Boolean

'Add The MAPI Components and
'add a MAPI Session and MAPI mail control to your form

On Error GoTo ErrHandler
   With MAPISession1
           .DownLoadMail = False
           .LogonUI = True
           .SignOn
           .NewSession = True
           MAPIMessages1.SessionID = .SessionID
   End With
   With MAPIMessages1
       .Compose
       .RecipAddress = sendto
       .AddressResolveUI = True
       .ResolveName
       .MsgSubject = subject
       .MsgNoteText = text
       .Send False
   End With
sendmail = True
ErrHandler:
 End Function
