We can utilize the vbSendMail.dll for this purpose.
'Module Level Declaration (WithEvents optional but recommended)
Private WithEvents poSendMail as vbSendMail.clsSendMail
Private Sub cmdSend_Click()
'Assumes you have a form with text boxes
set poSendMail = new vbSendMail.clsSendMail
poSendMail.SMTPHost = txtServer.Text
poSendMail.From = txtFrom.Text
poSendMail.FromDisplayName = txtFromName.Text
poSendMail.Recipient = txtTo.Text
poSendMail.RecipientDisplayName = txtToName.Text
poSendMail.ReplyToAddress = txtFrom.Text
poSendMail.Subject = txtSubject.Text
poSendMail.Attachment = txtFileName.text 'attached file name
poSendMail.Message = txtMsg.Text
poSendMail.Send
set poSendMail = nothing
End Sub

Open in new window

vbSendMail (as told by jimsweb) is available from http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=109

I would also go with this free component. It was the one I was using in my VB6 days.
