sending mails using outlook object

i am developing an application to send mails using the outlook object. since i was getting a security alert everytime the mails were sent, i downloaded and used the Redemption.dll library and safe mail objects.

i have pasted the code below:

Set myItem = CreateObject("Redemption.SafeMailItem")
Set oitem = oOutlookApplication.CreateItem(olMailItem)
strToAddress = olInboxItems_ItemAdd(myITems(intcnt))
myItem.Item = oitem
myItem.Recipients.Add (strToAddress)
myItem.Recipients.ResolveAll
myItem.Subject = "test"
myItem.Body = "this is a test"

the problem with this code is that the mails are sent to the draft folder and not the outbox. i found out why this is happening. it is because there is no email address in "sent by". i am not able to assign a sent by email address using redemption. so what is the solution to this?

Try this see if this solve your problem:

Private Sub Command4_Click()
    Dim iOutlook As Outlook.Application
    Dim myApp As Outlook.MailItem
    Set iOutlook = New Outlook.Application
    Set myApp = iOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    temp = "username"
    txtMessage = "Hello World Again!"
    AttachFile = "C:\test\test.gif"
    myApp.To = "receiver@domain.com"
    myApp.Subject = "Hello World!"
    myApp.Attachments.Add AttachFile
    myApp.Body = "Hi " & temp & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & txtMessage
    myApp.Send
    Do While iOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderOutbox).Items.Count <> 0
        DoEvents
    Loop
    MsgBox "Successfully Sent", vbInformation, "Email Sent"
End Sub

this cannot solve my problem because outlook has a security patch that needs a response from the user every time a mail will be sent. that is why i am using the redemption object.

Take a look at these links:
- http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/
- http://www.outlookforum.com/t36290-s 

Included, some code that creates a Auto Reply for every new message in the Inbox ...
This example uses Outlook Redemption

Sub RedemptionMail()

Dim oOutlook As Outlook.Application
Dim oFldr As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim oMsg, oReply As Redemption.SafeMailItem
Dim mSender As Redemption.AddressEntry
Dim mSendQue As Redemption.MAPIUtils
Dim oMessage As Object
Dim oNs As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim mSubject, mFrom, mBody As String

Set oOutlook = New Outlook.Application
Set oNs = oOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set oFldr = oNs.PickFolder
Set oMsg = CreateObject("Redemption.SafeMailItem")
Set oReply = CreateObject("Redemption.SafeMailItem")
Set mSendQue = CreateObject("Redemption.MAPIUtils")

oMsg.AuthKey = "*******"
oReply.AuthKey = "*******"
mSendQue.AuthKey = "*******"

For Each oMessage In oFldr.Items
    oMsg.Item = oMessage
    oReply.Item = oMessage.Reply ' •¤• Create reply to original message •¤•
    oReply.Body = "Testing Auto Reply"
    oReply.Send
    mSubject = oMsg 'Get e-mail subject
    mFrom = oMsg.SenderName 'Get e-mail SendersName
    Set mSender = oMsg.Sender
    mFromAdd = mSender.Address
    mBody = oMsg.Body 'Get e-mail message body
Next oMessage

mSendQue.DeliverNow

Set oOutlook = Nothing
Set oNs = Nothing
Set oFldr = Nothing
Set oMsg = Nothing
Set oReply = Nothing
Set mSender = Nothing
Set mSendQue = Nothing

End Sub
