Below is some code i got off the net, to send an email using Outlook (not using smtp)

What do i change to get this working with:-

Just Outlook,

or if not too hard, both Outlook or Outlook express.

(the version of outlook express is always V5, and Outlook is always 97 version)

Thankyou in advance


Set objOutbox = GetObject("", "Outlook.Application")
Set newMail = objOutbox.CreateItem(olMailItem)
        newMail.To = ""        
        newMail.bcc = ""
        newMail.Subject = "This is a test"

        newMail.HTMLBody = "Body of message here"
        MsgBox "Email address must be completed"
        End If
