use the code below.

You also need to add the reference for Microsoft Outlook XX.X Object library

where xx.x denote the version of outlook u are using.
Dim oa As New Outlook.Application

Dim msg As Outlook.MailItem

Set msg = oa.CreateItem(olMailItem)

msg.To = "receiver@mail.com"

msg.Body = "message"

msg.Send

Open in new window

There are numerous codes available in the net to send mail from outlook/outlook express. Usually these codes will send mail with the help of default mail clients.
