Why email not being sent

I have this code in the afterupdate event of a checkbox.  But when the checkbox is checked true the email is not being sent.  In fact nothing is happening.

Private Sub chkbxSampleShipped_AfterUpdate()

   If Me.chkbxSampleShipped = True Then
Dim varName As Variant
Dim varCC As Variant
Dim varSubject As Variant

    varName = "somebody@somewhere.com"
    varCC = "somebodyelse@somewhere.com"

    varSubject = "The sample has been shipped for part # - " & [txtPartN] & ""

    DoCmd.SendObject , , , varName, varCC, , varSubject, varBody, True, False
    MsgBox "The samples shipped notification has been emailed to Bill and Bob."

    End If

End Sub

If the msgbox was not just for testing and meant to be part of the program, then I would modify it to:

 MsgBox "The samples shipped notification has been emailed to: " & varName
