Sending an email?

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.

If you want really high performace try

http://www.geocel.com/devmailer/Technical_Specs.htm

Its quick and simple, though relatively unsophisticated.

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

BlackShark and TimCottee... ill have a look at those and see which one best suits my need.

GrahamAtJobserve... sorry i am trying not to purchase in order to get a solution.
