Run MAPI on Windows server 2000

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to run an application that I developed under Win XP on a Windows server 2000 box.

I'm still getting the exception: "COM object with CLSID {3FA7DEB3-6438-101B-ACC1-00AA00423326} is either not valid or not registered" when I do some calls to MAPI.

The application is a service that run under a specific user account (specified in the service logon tab).

I've read somewhere that MAPI won't run without an outlook installation but I found out later that this is false because someone here is running the same code on a server without Office or Exchange. The only difference is the other app is written in VB6, I just took is code and translate it in .NET. And we cannot install Office on the server as this is not recommended by microsoft.

I tried the regasm util to register the Interop.MAPI.dll but it still dont work.

I'll be more than happy if anyone have any good suggestion.

Thanks i advance.

You can run MAPI under .NET.  Add the reference to the COM control. I am using MAPI controls to send email with Eudoea. If you need the code let me know

Thank you guys,

I know iboutchkine that it work, it work on my workstation but not on a server without a mail client installed. We made it work here on the same platform but the application was build in VB6. I try to run the same code translated in .NET on another Windows Server 2000.

I found this that I'll first try, we'll reboot the server later to see if it works.

If this don't work I'll try the other dll supported by .NET in the link that testn sent.

Thanks
