I received help yesterday with a macro that generates emails fom an Excel sheet on a daily basis. The macro given to me worked fine, but when I modified my sheet and subsequently the macro I am getting and error. In particular I am getting a "type mismatch" error on this line:

If Now() - Cells(Cel.Row, "A") > 21 And LCase(Cells(Cel.Row, "E").Value) <> "yes" Then

[Now], of course, returns a Date type but [Cells(Cel.Row, "A")]  is returning a string with the value "Date". This because Line 1 is a header line. Can somebody please adjust the macro to start on Line 2 and terminate on the first blank line? Thank you.

    Dim OutMail As Object
    Dim Cel As Range
    Dim i As Integer
    
 
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    OutApp.Session.Logon
    
    For Each Cel In Columns("D").Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
        If Now() - Cells(Cel.Row, "A") > 21 And LCase(Cells(Cel.Row, "E").Value) <> "yes" Then
            Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
            With OutMail
                .to = Cel.Value
                .Subject = "Order Number " & Cells(Cel.Row, "F").Value

Thank you, I am now getting Run-time error '424' - Object required on line:

If IsDate(cell.Value) = True Then

I'm thinking because the date column is actually A and the email column is D? Is the code above looking for dates in D or A?

Yes change this line to...
If IsDate(cell.Value) = True Then
to this...
If IsDate(cells(cell.row,"A").value) = True Then
