Using docmd sendobject results in error microsoft can't send a message for the reason stated in the preceding alert

Got an access form with a button that when clicked attaches a file to an e-mail and sends it.

I use the docmd.sendobject command.

This used to work fine and has been working for a good while. However, all of a sudden it has stopped working and now displays the following error when clicked:

Runtime error '2293'
microsoft can't send a message for the reason stated in the preceding alert

This is driving me nuts as i cannot get the form to work again.

Any ideas to what i can do?

Thanks in advance,
