Attachment limit when using MAPI

Hello,

When using MAPI to launch Outlook 2007 through code, it only works with a maximum of 2 attachments. These are small attachments so its not getting caught up on size. Any ideas what the problem could be?

The code spits out "MAPI General Error 2" when sending more than 2 attachments, but nothing when not.

Sorry to ask you this. But are you trying to send attachments using Outlook 2007 and you are getting the above error message.

Or are you using any other MAPI application to do this.
