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)
    ActiveWorkbook.Save
    CurrFile = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "\" & ActiveWorkbook.Name
    With olMail
    .To = "bgustafson@lincolnwayenergy.com;dzimmerman@lincolnwayenergy.com;single@lincolnwayenergy.com;srichardson@lincolnwayenergy.com;tharrison@lincolnwayenergy.com;vwalter@lincolnwayenergy.com"
    .CC = "rsauer@hawkrenew.com;ehalverson@hawkrenew.com"
    .Subject = "Distiller Grain Load and Contract update - Nevada"
    .Body = ActiveSheet.Range("c3").Text & vbCrLf
    '.Attachments.Add CurrFile
    .Attachments.Add "s:\reports\nevada loads pub.xls"
    .Display
    .Send
    End With
    Set olMail = Nothing
    Set olApp = Nothing

What version of Outlook are you using?

If you have just upgraded to a more recent version its likely the Security Update in Outlook has now stopped this from happening.

We are using Outlook 2007 version 12 SP2. Any way to work around the problem with 3rd party fixes similar to "Click Yes"?
