In my code, I specify the line to start my email task,

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

I DID go to Tools, References, and checked "Microsoft Outlook 11.0 object library" (I have Outlook 2003)
But, when Access hits the above line, I get Automation error, the specified module could not be found.

what gives?

if you are early binding a library (checking the reference box) then you should early bind in your code ...

Set objOutlook = New Outlook.Application

Do any of your references say "Missing"? If so, please clear that reference and recompile to see if you really need the "Missing" reference. As soon as 1 reference goes goofy functionality of all other libraries is compromised.
If you type Set objOutlook = New    and then a space does Outlook show in the intellisense dropdown?
