Send MAPI mail while outlook 2003 is closed

I'm looking for a way to send MAPI mail through outlook while it is closed, or have it auto-open while mapi mail is sent.  Outlook express does a good job of this, sending mail through even when it's closed.  I've also noticed some computers do this already, although most seem not to.

You can send using CDO or via the Outlook object model either one.  Both will generate security dialog-boxes when the send command is executed.  That's because of the many viruses and worms designed to use Outlook as a transport mechanism.  If that's not a problem, then I can show you how to do this using the Outloook object model approach.  If the security prompts are a problem, then you have two choices.  One, you can use a third-party MAPI library called Redemption ( or you can use SMTP instead of MAPI.
