How can I Send E-Mail from an Access Table using MS Outlook

12 New Member
I am running access 2010. I have a table with email address' as one of the fields. I want to send the same message to all or some of my contacts. The table is named Donors and the field is Email address. I am using outlook express for my e-mail.

Outlook Express is not an MS Office application, and as such is not likely to fall within the experience range of most of our experts.

Application Automation may help some, but that's as far as I can go with the Outlook Express part I'm afraid.

NeoPa, my email is through outlook. If this is not able to work with access what other options do I have.

Thanks for any help

Outlook is well set up to be controlled from within Access. Your question title indicates you're using Outlook Express though. This new post is a contradiction of that so you won't be surprised to find we're somewhat confused at this point.

Please clarify before continuing.

The Logic would be as follows, any questions feel free to ask.

  6. Dim strSubject As String
  7. Dim MyDB As DAO.Database
  8. Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
  10. 'Do you even have E-Mail Addressess in the Donors Table?
  11. '[E-Mail Address] cannot be NULL

  24.     strTO = strTO & ![E-Mail Address] & ";"
  25.       .MoveNext
  26.   Loop
  27. End With
  29. 'Remove Trailing ';'

Sorry, my mail is through Outlook, not Outlook express.

The table is Donors and the field is E-Mail address

Thanks again and sorry for the misinformation

Will try ADezzi Thanks.

ADezii, can I run this code through a Macro or should I copy it into a module and run the module from a Macro?

What context do you need to run it in?

What I will be doing is sending a message to all listed email address'. One message to all either in a query from the donors table or the donors table itself

Right. With that cleared up (I've updated the thread title for you) I can probably leave you in ADezii's capable hands. He's a dab-hand at Outlook automation from Access. I'll keep an eye on this though, in case I can help at any stage.

Hello, I was playing around a bit with generators using next() and send(). And I was wondering why an extra send() method was introduced instead of simply allowing an argument for next(). Also, I find it a bit counter-intuitive that send(42) not only "sets" the generator to the specified value, but yields the next value at the same time.
