Emailing from within Ms Access
Posted on 2006-04-17
Not sure if this is the best place to post this but here goes.
I have an SBS2003 server (without Exchange) which has an MS Access application running on it. This application needs to send emails once a week to a few people. I used to have Outlook installed on this server, but mindfull of the pitfalls of running Outlook on an SBS Server, I uninstalled it with the intention that my application can use Outlook Express instead.
When my Access application attempts to send it's emails, I now get a runtime error: 2046 - The Command or Action SendObject isn't available now.
I have used Outlook Express in this manner succesfully on another 2003 server. So presumably I need to tweak something in the registry to make it work here.
Anybody got any ideas?
