I am trying to Send an EMail via Access.
I get the following message which indicates something fairly fundamental.

=============================================
Microsoft Access Can't Send This Email Message

Before attempting to send an email from Microsoft Office Access, resolve the problem identified in the previous message, or configure your computer to send and receive email
=============================================

I set up outlook just a few hours ago (and linked it to my Gmail).
It seems to work since I send an email to my Gmail account and it arrived in Gmail.

How can I get fix this error.

(Incidentally, I found stuff on the web about this but made no progress).

I have one suggestion.  Make sure outlook is set as your default mail client.  It could be that OE or another client that is not configured or supported for this is default and passing this error.

Do you have any other Accounts setup in Outlook? I'm not sure GMail will allow you to relay messages like that, but could be wrong. In most cases, you'd setup an account for your "main" email account (i.e. yourname@yourisp.com), and you'd have setup information that would allow you to connect to the outgoing server, etc etc.

Thanks so far... I will pursue these.

Can I also advise that I am somewhat out of my depth here.
My Access is ok but knowledge of comms and email is poor..

Thanks congraman,

I am not really using code at this point.
I have a report in "Print Preview" and there is an Email button on the ribbon.

I am clicking the Email button.
