Hi hemanth,

FYI, CreateObject("Outlook.Application") method is actually create an instance of Microsoft Outlook, Not Outlook Express..

The PROGID of "Outlook.Application" is to get a reference to Outlook 97/98/2000/2002 and not Outlook Express.  Outlook Express has no automation object to speak of, so if you want to send mail using Outlook Express, you have to use Simple MAPI (or the MAPI control that comes with VB) to get the job done.

If it's just sending email you're interested in - not bothered about it going via OE then try looking at the free component at

       With ctlMAPIMessages
       
       .SessionId = ctlMAPISession.SessionId
       .Compose
       
       Dim szText As String
           szText = vbCrLf + "Text Message Area"
           .MsgNoteText = szText + vbCrLf + vbCrLf + vbCrLf
           .AttachmentPathName = m_szVdfFile  'your file name here
           .AttachmentPosition = Len(.MsgNoteText) - 1
       End If
