selecting an account when sending e-mail from Access 2016 through Outlook?


I've got to the code to send e-mails from an Access 2016 app via Outlook 2016. And that works. But I want the e-mails to be sent through a different Outlook account. How would I do that?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Have you tried?

something like this
Sub SendUsingAccount()
 For Each oAccount In Application.Session.Accounts
    If oAccount.userName = "john.doe" Then
        Set myAccount = oAccount
        Exit For
    End If
 Set oMail = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
 oMail.Subject = "Subject"
 oMail.Recipients.Add ("")
 oMail.SendUsingAccount = myAccount
End Sub
