MAPI fails as Scheduled Task

I have a very small email application that sends email using MAPI (Outlook Express)
It works ok interactively. The mail gets sent without any problem.

When I try to run it as a Scheduled Task I get the following error
"Unspecified Failure has occurred"
the error occurs at the 1st statement "MAPISession1.SignOn"

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi jlukins,
What are you running as a scheduled task?
The resulting executable of a Visual Basic 6 program?

hi,
i has a similar kind of problem, my porblem was cause due the profile.
The "wrong" user profile loaded in the scheduled task.
you might want to add a username/password to your task, and that might do the trick.

hope it helps
