Dear Experts,

Cant I get around this if so can you please enlighten the path for me?

This is what I have so far it works but user has to accept message (see attached)

Is there a way around this prompt?

 Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
        Dim olMail As Outlook.MailItem
        olApp = New Outlook.Application
        Try

            ' WORks but requires outlook to be open and user to accept

            ' Create a new MailItem.
            olMail = olApp.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem)
            olMail.Recipients.Add("test@test.com")
            olMail.Subject = "IMPORT SUMMARY"
            olMail.HTMLBody = "Attached  are Imported Files and Error Messages!!"""
            olMail.Attachments.Add("C:\test.txt", Outlook.OlAttachmentType.olByValue)
            olMail.Send()
            '
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show("Error File Import" & ex.Message)
            Dim mylogfilefile As System.IO.StreamWriter
            mylogfilefile = My.Computer.FileSystem.OpenTextFileWriter("c:\test.txt", True)
            mylogfilefile.WriteLine("" + ex.Message)
            mylogfilefile.Close()
        End Try

You might give a look at the classes in the System.Net.Mail namespace namespace that goes around Outlook to send email. The documentation provides you with sample code.

Look at the documentation for the Attachment class for sample code that is very close to what you are trying to achieve with outlook.
