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.
