This is a product that claims to use smtp to send emails from access reports or queries

I never heard of it, but looks useful

I can assure you that ... if Total Access Emailer by FMS 'claims' to do whatever ... it *will* if fact do it :-)

I use several FMS products (and I know Luke Chung) ... and they all work as advertised. I have not used TAE only because I've not had a specific use for it.

Works as advertized.   Haven't used it directly myself, but FMS products are all quality.

 You can by the way send mail via SMTP yourself from Access.  BLAT and vbSendMail are two popular choices.

  I've used both of those, but settled mainly on vbSendMail.

Thanks Joe and Jim for your kind words and endorsement. Glad we've met and exceeded your expectations on this and our other Microsoft Access products.

Hi Derek,

I'm the owner of FMS and one of the developers of Total Access Emailer. It's the most popular email automation program for Microsoft Access.

A fully-functional, 15 day trial version is available so you can try it out yourself: http://www.fmsinc.com/MicrosoftAccess/Email/free-trial.html

Please let me know if you have any questions about it.

Thank you all. I had not heard of this before so that's reassuring.

Luke,

I want to be able to send reports created by access version 2002 seamlessly with only the click of a "Send by email" button on a form returning a simple message "Done" after the email has been sent.

Do I need professional or standard version

Derek,

 There are a number of ways to achieve that, as well as sending e-mails.

 Talking directly to a SMTP server is one way, working through the installed e-mail client (i.e. Outlook) is another.  

 I prefer talking directly to a SMTP server, since that relies on nothing being installed on the client basically.

 As I mentioned in the other comment, BLAT, which comes in a command line utility and a DLL, and also vbSendMail, will both do that as well.   vbSendMail is pretty much a drop in.  Using BLAT requires some setup work.

 But if you want something all packaged and ready to roll, then Total Access E-mailer or another 3rd party package would be the ticket.

 If you want to be closer to Outlook because you want to do more then just send an e-mail, then two ways to go with that is:

http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/home.htm

or

http://www.everythingaccess.com/vbMAPI.htm

 Both products provide object models which allow you to do more then just send e-mail

  Not quite what your asking for, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Jim.

If you want to use VBA to automate the emails -- which is what you need to tie it to a button -- you'll need to get the Professional Version. That includes the VBA runtime library that you can distribute to all your users.

The Standard Version is the add-in (which is also included in the Professional Version) and allows you to create and send emails interactively to everyone in your list (table or query).
