Hi,

I am currently using the attached code to send an email via outlook when a button is clciked, however it doesnt recognise the .From field.

Is there a way around this so I can send from a certain mailbox?

Thanks,

Paul.
With OutMail
            .From = "me@email.com"
            .To = DestinationEmail
            .CC = ""
            .BCC = "email@email.com"
            .Subject = "Test Message"
            .Body = strbody
            .htmlbody = strbody
            .send()
 
        End With

it is better not to use the Outlook object for many reasons (like you will get a security dialog on the Send method).

have a look at http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2007/09/Using-SystemNetMail.aspx to be introduced to the System.Net.Mail namespace

Thanks emoreau,

The problem is that I am sending via an exchange server, therefore I dont have any SMTP details to add.

You can use your Exchange server as your SMTP server
