Open attachement in mail if outlook is not open

Hello experts,
I have a problem with my Dynamics NAV program. I use this to send an email using MAPI. For this I use the outlook libraries, and this works fine. However, I have one issue: if outlook is not open when I send the mail, I cannot open the attachments that I added to the mail. If outlook is open, I can open the attachments.

This is my code:
autOutlookNamespace := autOutlookAPP.GetNamespace('MAPI');

autOutlookItem := autOutlookAPP.CreateItem(0);
autOutlookItem.Subject( ... );

autOutlookAtts := autOutlookItem.Attachments;
autOutlookAtts.Add( '...' );


Open in new window

I suspect it has something to do with the logon (permissions), but I'm not sure. Do you have any ideas ?

Kind regards,

Hi, I'm sorry this doesn't help me. I don't use macro's in outlook itself, I use outlook (in the background) to send a mail from another application.
