My OS is windows 7 and I have a small database with email addresses.  I want to automate the process of sending a message from Access or using mail merge from MS word.  Is there any sample apps or template that I can follow.  I propose to use Outlook as my email client.  Thank u.

Please try this:
Option Compare Database
Option Explicit


Public Function SendMail(DisplayMsg As Boolean, strTo As String, strCC As
String, strBCC As String, _
strSubject As String, strBody As String, strAttachPathFile As String) As
Boolean

Dim objOutlook As Outlook.Application
Dim objOutlookMsg As Outlook.MailItem
Dim objOutlookRecip As Outlook.Recipient
Dim objOutlookAttach As Outlook.Attachment

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook Application")
Set objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)


With objOutlookMsg

'Add "To" recipient
Set objOutlookRecip = .Recipients.Add(strTo)
objOutlookRecip.Type = olTo

'"Add "CC" recipient
If IsNull(strCC) = False Then
Set objOutlookRecip = .Recipients.Add(strCC)
objOutlookRecip.Type = olCC
End If

'Add "BCC" recipient
If IsNull(strBCC) = False Then
Set objOutlookRecip = .Recipients.Add(strBCC)
objOutlookRecip.Type = olBCC
End If

'Add subject, body, and importance of the E-Mail Messzage
.Subject = strSubject
.Body = strBody
.Importance = olImportanceHigh


'Add Attachment
If IsNull(strAttachPathFile) = False Then
Set objOutlookAttach = .Attachments.Add(strAttachPathFile)
End If

For Each objOutlookRecip In .Recipients
objOutlookRecip.Resolve
If Not objOutlookRecip.Resolve Then
objOutlookMsg.Display
End If
Next objOutlookRecip

.Send
End With

Set objOutlookMsg = Nothing
Set objOutlook = Nothing


End Function

You can use Word 2007 or Publisher 2007  to send customized emails to a list of recipients that may (or may not ) be in your Contacts list.  Outlook is the program that sends the emails.

In this case, you use Access to maintain the list of intended recipients.   Update Access tables with names, email addresses and other data fields for the email.

For Word or Publisher, create a file and use Mailings tab to start send emails.  The recipient list can use an Access table, an Access query, or Outlook Contacts to send email.

The VBA code example is great for sending email from within an Access database.

Patrick,
I saw your article, since my present project is a volunteer one, thus I would not want to spend too much time on it.  But it is good to know that it is doable especially when we have Gurus like u.
