what is the command to send email

hi
I have a spare parts form and when spare parts is out of stock a new form comes in which it should contact the suppliers by email how can I do that Please let me know
Exactly what I need is that when I press the button I want all the information to be sent by email through outlook express

Thanks

Its the way things from ee are pasted, you can type long statements in VB but EE puts CR+LF in long lines.

Try this instead:

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

vbSendMail, easy to use less bugs than MAPI, won't send viruses, you'll love it!
