Can someone review the following VBA code?  I am getting the error:

SendUsing configuration Value is invalid

Sub TestCopy()
   
   '///////////////////////////////////////
'//SMTP Configuration Settings

        Dim Msg As String
   
        Dim FileName As String
        Dim iMsg As Object
        Dim iConf As Object
        Dim Flds As Variant
        Dim Attach As String
       
        Attach = "C:\Users\Glen\Documents\Passwords.xlsx"
   
        Set iMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
        Set iConf = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
        iConf.Load -1
        Set Flds = iConf.Fields
        With Flds
       
                     
        '//SMTP Configuration for SMTPCORP.COM
             .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") _
                             = "smtpcorp.com"
            .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 2525
             .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
            .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "gpspow"
             .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "99999"
            .Update
        End With
         Msg = "Test message area" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
        'Create Mail Item ans send it
        With iMsg
                Set .Configuration = iConf
                .To = "gpspow55@gmail.com"
                 '.To = EmailAddr
                .From = """Glen"" <gpspow55@gmail.com>"
                '.CC = "" ';"PHanson@sleh.com"
                 .CC = "gpspow55@gmail.com;"
                .BCC = ""
                .Subject = Subj
                .TextBody = Msg
                .AddAttachment Attach
                 .Send
        End With
'//////////////////////////////////////

           

           
           
           
End Sub

You're missing several configuration items:
sendusing
'Specifies the method used to send messages:
'(1) Local SMTP Pickup Service (2) Use SMTP Over Network (3) Use Exchange Server
.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = <whatever>

smptserverport
'The SMTP Port which must be enabled in your network by ISP or local Firewall
.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smptserverport") = <whatever>

smtpusessl
'Indicates whether Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) should be used when
'sending messages using the SMTP protocol over the network or not.
'SSL/STARTTLS: Boolean
.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpusessl") = <True or False>

smtpconnectiontimeout
'Maximum Time in Seconds CDO will try to Establish Connection
.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = <whatever>

The error message is caused by missing the first item.

From my quick view over the code...
The smtp server has to be a server name, so i.e. myEmailserver.smtpcorp.com

Most Servers listen on port 25 for SMTP. So if you use any other port, the server has to listen on this port for SMTP connections, what has to be set up in the email server.

The other code looks fine for my imagination.

As a matter of coding practice, you may want to

Dim cdoSchema

cdoSchema = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"

and then use constructs such as

.item(cdoSchema & "sendusing") = 2

This makes the code more readable and helps to prevents typographical errors.
