I am needing help in determining how to send a Mozilla Thunderbird  email from within a vb6 progrram . From my research it seems doable. I am hoping to find someone who has actually done this and would be agreeable to sharing their knowledge and experience with this task.

Thanks morrisbo

I think (could be wrong) that the command line option should look like this:

The commandline-option is thunderbird -compose "mailto:somebody@somewhere?cc=address@provider&subject=hi&body=something"

Reference Thunderbird under the Program Files folder to call up the executable.

Try that and let me know.

Thanks for your help. I have been having a problem getting Thunderbird to install on the computer used for testing the vb6 ap. May need to move to another computer.

I do have a question. Should I use the "Shell" command in the vb6 program to pass control to Thunderbird along with the command line option you mentioned above?

I plan to accept your solution and sign off shortly.

Thanks for your help here.
