Outlook Express Send button is missing

Posted on 2009-02-13

I am using the following VBA code in a MS Access function and on one of the user's PC the message appears without a Send button. When they send e-mails normally it is there. Can anyone suggest what might be going wrong?

DoCmd.SendObject , , , EMAILTO, , , "CaSS Version Upgrade Processed", sMessage, True

    If the problem is isolated to a specific users computer, I would ensure the user has not changed the code any.  Possibly, provide a new copy of the database.  Another thing I would do is search for this line of code throughout the VBA editor and see if it somehow got stuck where it is not suppose to be.

    Hello Rob4077,

    If you were not using the code, will the Outlook Express user have a Send button?

    Create a new Outlook Express identity.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi, Thanks for the comments. The send button works fine when the user sends a message normally and I can confirm the user has not changed the code.
    I am beginning to wonder, is it possible that VBA is trying to send the messages via Outlook instead of Outlook Express. The user always uses Outlook Express and would not have set up Outlook at all. How can I check and ensure that OE is being used by the VBA code?

    Accepted Solution

    Well I now have two users with the same problem but no idea what is causing the problem. As I said the send button in OE works fine but will not work when I use the above code in my Access application.
