Hi,

you can use the account object.

My VB6 is a little rusty - I have translated from C# so you may need to adjust the syntax, but you get the picture. (I didn't test the code - but it illustrates the principle)


'* Retrieve the account that has the specific SMTP address. 
Dim MyAccount as Outlook.Account
MyAccount = GetAccountForEmailAddress(application, smtpAddress)

'* Use this account to send the e-mail. 
newMail.SendUsingAccount = MyAccount
newMail.Send()

'*
Sub GetAccountForEmailAddress(application, smtpAddress) as account
Dim Myaccounts as Outlook.Accounts
Myaccounts = application.Session.Accounts
foreach  Myaccount in accounts 
            
  if Myaccount.SmtpAddress = smtpAddress then
     GetAccountForEmailAddress = Myaccount
     exit sub
   end if
end sub

Open in new window
