In Excel 2003 VBA email macro works fine but no information to user. How do I add this to the macro

This code works fine:
Sub Send_Email_Current_Workbook()
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
On Error Resume Next
With OutMail
.To = "xxxxxxxx.xxxxxx@xxxx.xxxx.uk"
.CC = ""
.BCC = ""
.Subject = "XXX Update"
.Body = "See attached"
.Attachments.Add ActiveWorkbook.FullName
End With
On Error GoTo 0
Set OutMail = Nothing
Set OutApp = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window

but the only confirmation is seeing an email in the Sent items. Just something to say that it has been sent would be fine, user input is not necessarily needed.

You could use a messagebox. Something like:
MsgBox "E-mail is sent. ", vbInformation

Open in new window

Place it after the .Send command you use. and remove the On Error Resume Next on line 9, because that would cause the messagebox to Always be displayed.

Notice: Excel does not know if the mail is delivered to the recipient.

Not enough information to confirm an answer.
I think the asker could certainly give the user information about the fact that a e-mail message has been sent.
 So I think the question is answered.
