suddenly Outlook does not process outgoing mail created using VBA except when Outlook is opened on the desktop. The mail can be seen staged in the "Outbox" and will process instantly upon the program startup. I have included the snips that create the e-mail within the VBA code.
Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
Dim olMail As MailItem
Dim CurrFile As String
Set olApp = New Outlook.Application
Set olMail = olApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
CurrFile = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "\" & ActiveWorkbook.Name
.To = "email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org"
.CC = "email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org"
.Subject = "Distiller Grain Load and Contract update - Nevada"
.Body = ActiveSheet.Range("c3").Text & vbCrLf
.Attachments.Add "s:\reports\nevada loads pub.xls"
Set olMail = Nothing
Set olApp = Nothing
