Hi... I am currently using the Microsoft Outlook 9.0 reference to connect to my outlook and send and recieve mail.  However, if Outlook is not present this will not work... could someone tell me another good way of sending email w/o having to have outlook on the pc?

Thanks

Or use the vbSendmail component from http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=109

This is a simple activex dll that can be used to send mail without any mail client on the machine.

Its quick and simple, though relatively unsophisticated.

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal
lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String,
ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Const SW_NORMAL = 1

sAddr = "mailto:you@home.com"

ShellExecute hwnd, "open", sAddr, vbNullString, vbNullString, SW_NORMAL
