I want to make a vb app to send html emails via outlook outbox

I want to make a vb app to send html emails via outlook outbox, so when i have made all my emails they will show up in the outbox of outlook.  So say I am offline I can still have the emails ready and the send them when i connect again?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

The suggestion of using an smtp server is valid (if you have one), but you can also use Outlook.

Start with getting an Outlook.Application object, as most of the other objects in Outlook are not public-createable.

Here's a starting point:

The example shows you how to create a task, but you can make a mail item just as easily. Then just set a couple of properties and Send it.

You only need an smtp server (free available at internet)

The link provided works with any client e-mail software. There are many free smtp servers on the net.
