MAPISendMail Function (64-bit) works with Outlook Express but NOT with Office Outlook

Posted on 2006-07-12

This is a an application that uses the MAPISendMail function to send mail.  When Outlook Express is configured as the default e-mail client, both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of my program opens an e-mail message when the function is called, which is the default behavior.

When Office Outlook is configured to be the default e-mail client, the 32-bit version of my program works fine and behaves accordinly, but when the 64-bit version runs it brings the New Connection  Wizard.  In other words, the 64-bit version the MAPISendMail is not finding the configured Office Outlook account to send the mail.

Any ideas on why this is happening or a workaround?

Thanks!

In http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/mapi/html/530af3c4-c629-4819-ad1c-feed13cc2832.asp, I notice the comment:

> To function properly, the underlying Exchange or Microsoft Outlook® MAPI subsystem must be properly installed on the client computer.

Have alook through the Microsoft support site to see what's required to get the MAPI subsystem properly installed.

Also, you might want to post a comment in http:/Applications/MS_Office/Outlook/ to see if there are any Office developers thereabouts to lend a hand.
