Word macro to send an email to a mailbox on the mail server

We are using Lotus Notes R5. We receive our pay slips in a single Word document.  I have been tasked with simplifying the distribution of the payslips to th individual employees.  I have written a Word macro which seperates th slips into individual Word documents and the documets are saved as the the employee's short-email-address.doc (ex JohnS.doc) .  The files ase saved on the mail server.  How can I best have an agent send these payslips to the individual recipients?  

For example, would it be possible for the Word macro to send an email to a mailbox on the mail server which would trigger the agent to run when the email arrives?
All suggestions will be appreciated.

Better to have the Word macro just send teh payslips directly, rather than depositing them on the server and then having an agent do them.  Here's a simple function in VBA to do this:

Sub SendSlip ( notesSession , shortName As String , attachmentFilePath As String)
    Set dbDir = notesSession.getDbDirectory()
    Set myMail = dbDir.openMailFile()
    Set msg = myMail.CreateDocument()
    msg.replaceItemValue "Form" , "Memo"
    msg.replaceItemValue "SendTo" , shortName
    msg.replaceItemValue "Subject" , "Pay stub enclosed"
    Set body = msg.createRichTextItem("Body")
    body.embedObject 1454 , "" , attachmentFilePath
    msg.send False
End Sub

Just pass it a notesSession onject, the short name string, and a string containing teh full path name of the file.

How to create a NotesSession?  Attach the TLB from the Notes directory to your VBA project, then...

Dim s as New Lotus.NotesSession
s.Initialize("your Notes password")

You can now pass --> s <-- as the first parameter.

Hello Qwaletee,

I presume you mean the notes32.tlb, but I not sure that I know how to attach it to the macro.  The macro is in a .dot template.  Does that make any difference?
