SMTP Submission via a checkbox

I need a form, that contacts a check box, that when checked, prompts the user "Do you want to send an alert?" and if they say "Yes" sends the email out to a hardcoded email address within the code using SMTP.   Can someone please help me out with this?

You can just reference your project with Microsoft Outlook then use the following commands:

Private mobjOut As Outlook.Application

Private Sub mychkbox_click()
   Call Send(email@address.com, "FirstNameofRecepient")
End Sub

Sub Send(sEmail As String, sFirstName As String)
    Dim obj As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim HTMLDetail As String
    HTMLDetail="This is what I went the alert to say"
    obj.HTMLBody = HTMLDetail
    obj.To = sEmail
    obj.Subject = "My Emails subject"
    obj.Send
End Sub

You would probably want your checkbox code to be more like this:

Private Sub mychkbox_click()
   If mychkbox.value=true then
      response=msgbox ("Do you want to send an alert?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Send Alert?")
      if response=vbNo then exit sub
      Call Send(email@address.com, "FirstNameofRecepient")
   End if
End Sub

Or something to that effect.
