OUtlook Express using what DLL?

Hi experts....

as i know... we can use CDO.dll to send/received email, edit calendar and so on...in our MS Outlook.

How about Outlook Express?..... can i use the same DLL to send & received email? or they are using different DLL? What is the DLL?

I use an add-in called MAPIMail.  You make a call to it and it will use your default mail app to send email.  It can be downloaded from www.universalthread.com

MAPIMail is the solid answer here.  I have it working in my program and it calls OE or even Outlook if that is set as the default mail client.

My understanding of the question was the asker wanted a yes or no answer on if they can use CDO.dll in OE.
And what the dll for Outlook is.

Okay.  I see.  The request was apparently not for an option, but how to access Outlook Express.  The answer then would be NO, you can't.

That sounds like the answer to me :-).
