Send mail from Access 2000 using outlook Express 5.5

Hi

I have an access 2000 db with email addresses.  These addresses need to receive a monthly HTML newsletter.  My email client is Outlook Express 6 or 5.5

I know you can send an HTML letter using Outlook 2000 by adding a reference to Outlook.Application and objOutlookMsg.HTMLBody = HTML_String.  Is there a similiar reference for Express?

If not how else could I build this HTML newsletter functionality using Access 2000 and Express 6.0?

You could use MAPIMAIL to send using the default email client.  It can be downloaded from www.universalthread.com and is quite easy to use with only a few lines of code.

Hi

Struggling to find a mapimail download there, found one but it was a Foxpro download.  It also looks l need to pay for the www.universalthread.com site?

I also found an old Experts Exchange thread saying that Mapimail does not work with HTML emails?  Is this correct from your experience?

I wouldn't know that one for sure.  All of the emails I send are plain text and it works great.

Is there a one stop shop/website where I can get some information on how to use this mapimail to send emails from Access.

If you downloaded it you will have enough sample code and instructions to learn how to use it.  It is a quite simple couple of lines of code.

set classlib to mapimail
local oMapi
oMapi = createobject("CusMapi")
oMapi.SendMail("", "", "address@hotmail.com", "Test Subject", "Test EMail", "", .f., .f.)

That is VFP code.  It comes with VB code.
