issue with using outlook in vb.net

I have a function where I am using outllok to save an email from a vb.net application which works fine in my development environment using visual studio but get the following error when I deploy to test environment which is using windows 2008 r2 and below is the error:

Message from webpage
---------------------------
problem in page load to the error: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).

and below is my piece of code:
Imports outlook = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

 Public Sub testemail()
        Dim OutlookMessage As outlook.MailItem
        Dim AppOutlook As New outlook.Application

        Dim objNS As outlook._NameSpace = AppOutlook.Session
        Dim objFolder As outlook.MAPIFolder
        objFolder = objNS.GetDefaultFolder(outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderDrafts)


        Try
            OutlookMessage = AppOutlook.CreateItem(outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem)
            Dim Recipents As outlook.Recipients = OutlookMessage.Recipients
            Recipents.Add("myemail@hotmail.com")

            OutlookMessage.Subject = "test"
            OutlookMessage.Body = "Testing outlook Mail"
            OutlookMessage.BodyFormat = outlook.OlBodyFormat.olFormatHTML
            OutlookMessage.Save()
            ' OutlookMessage.Move(objFolder)
        Catch ex As Exception
            'MessageBox.Show("Mail could not be sent") 'if you dont want this message, simply delete this line    
        Finally
            OutlookMessage = Nothing
            AppOutlook = Nothing
        End Try
end sub

Bob LearnedCommented:
The obvious question is do you have Outlook installed on the server?

no, all I want is the user to sve an email in outlook and anybody has an idea using exchange webservices?

Bob LearnedCommented:
You would need to install Outlook on the service to use the COM library.

Using Exchange Web Services would be different from using Outlook interop library.  How much would you need to know about EWS?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

 
Bob LearnedCommented:
If you need to understand a little about EWS, you can start here:

Exchange Web Services
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/399015/Exchange-Web-Services

You would need to connect to the Exchange web service, create an EmailMessage, and call the Save method to save to the default folder.

It works fine in development but when I pushed it to the test server i am getting the below error :
I even installed the WES on the server.

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified

it work after I manually registed the dll but it takes a long time calling EWS, is there a way to speed up?

What is taking a long time (auto-discover, saving E-Mail message, ...?  

Can you show me code where it takes too much time?

welcome 123Author Commented:
I commented the line: 'service.AutodiscoverUrl(validateEmail, AddressOf ValidateRedirectionUrlCallback)
 and it still works and also speeds up other wise its way too slow and I don't know why this line is actually useed

 Public Sub SaveEmailMessage()

        Dim service As ExchangeService = Nothing
        Dim emailServiceURL As String = "https://mymailserver.somewhere.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx"
        Try
            If service Is Nothing Then
                service = New ExchangeService(ExchangeVersion.Exchange2010_SP1)
                service.Url = New Uri(emailServiceURL)
                service.UseDefaultCredentials = False
            End If
            Dim netcredit As New NetworkCredential("testusername", "testpassword", "testdomain")
            service.Credentials = netcredit
'service.AutodiscoverUrl(validateEmail, AddressOf ValidateRedirectionUrlCallback)
         
            'now send a test email
            'EmailMessage(message = New EmailMessage(service))
            Dim message = New EmailMessage(service)
            message.Subject = "Email from PCardTE"

            message.Body = SaveData().ToString
            ' message.Body.BodyType = BodyType.HTML

            message.ToRecipients.Add("abc@obm.state.oh.us")
                        message.Save()
            ' message.SendAndSaveCopy()
            '.BodyFormat = outlook.OlBodyFormat.olFormatHTML

            Catch ex As Exception


                Dim Err As New ErrorLog()
                Err.ErrorLog(Server.MapPath("~/Logs/ErrorLog"), ex.Message)
                JavaScriptSetFocus("Unable to save email due to the error: " & ex.Message)
            Finally
               
            End Try
    End Sub

If you want to discover the URL, then you would use the AutoDiscoverUrl method.  Since you are specifying the URL, then you don't need to use auto-discover.

Also, if you don't want to show the URL for your web service to the world, then you might want to ask an admin to remove that from the question (it's a good practice not to post sensitive information in a comment).
