I am looking for an example of auto-email
to populate:
   TO,CC,BODY.
In the body, a standard message is structured. Also it would add the attachment which is in the
C:\Sent\.. folder
My email system is  Groupwise/Novell...
Do I need to use somekind of Group wise Type Library? Thanks

Does this code need a reference to Groupwise/novell type library just like when doing a Outlook message?

Start by going to Novell's developer site for GroupWise: http://www.novell.com/developer/develop_to_groupwise.html. There you can find the SDK for GroupWise and code examples in a few different languages.

Here's a support article on the GroupWise API with VB examples: http://support.novell.com/techcenter/articles/ana20000813.html

And here's a recent Novell forum post on the subject: http://forums.novell.com/novell-product-support-forums/groupwise/version-independent-forums/gw-messenger/389682-visual-basic-sample-groupwise-messenger-api.html

Don't forget that the GroupWise client must be installed for your API code to work.

If your email client has the selection "About GroupWise" under the "Help" menu, then yes the GroupWise client is installed. If you use Outlook to access your GroupWise emails, then you may need to install the GroupWise client on your pc.

Which version of GroupWise do you use?

Perfect. There isn't much difference in the API between version 8 and prior versions, but the forum post I gave you shows code used in a v8 environment.
