We have an Access 2007 accdb whihc has vba code to instantiate Outlook for sending emails as part of a process. Since we upgraded to Office 2010, the vba code that instantiates Outlook raises the error "Could not open ....mailbox. do you have the rights...etc".

That's odd ... generally that would cause the same issue on the either platform.

Can you show the code you're using to work with Outlook.

FWIW, I've taken to using the vbMAPI libraries from www.everythingaccess.com when I must work with Outlook. It is very easy to use and deploy, doesn't require any 3rd party utilities/libraries, and works flawlessly every time. I have no interest in the company other than as a satisfied user.

Scott, thanks. Here's the code. The error that it could not open the mailbox is raised by:

For Each aFolder In objFolder.Folders

FYI, I found this advice for setting a security certificate for Outlook,  but it did not fix the problem:

Curious if the objFolders object is set correctly here:

Set objFolder = objNS.GetSharedDefaultFolder(objGLRecip, 6)

Can you set a breakpoint and determine if that is being set properly?

And - again - this sort of issues with permissions was the entire reason I purchased the vbMAPI library. Saved me tons of time and work.

I apologize. My initial question was wrong. The err was on the line

Set objNewMessage = New Redemption.SafeMailItem

The solution was to download the latest version of Redemption.dll and register it.
