In case you want to send mails through MAPI then use two ActiveX control provided by VB named MAPISession and MAPIMessage. See the following links about these controls:
http://abstractvb.com/code/code713.asp
http://www.thescarms.com/vbasic/MapiEmail.asp

However, I would still suggest you to use the vbSendmail component at the link I mentioned above. Not only me but most of the experts at this firum will vouch for that component.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can also leave a question at: http://search.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/New_to_EE/
to change the grades given by you to any particular question (I dont mean it for my answer). Some of these links can be very useful to a new comer. Becuase I was amongst you one day and was told to rectify my grading habits when I gave a C grade to an expert ;). Have a good day.
