Error Message: "Microsoft Access Can't Open the Mail Session"

P: n/a
I am getting the following error when I am trying to send a report as an
email attachment

"Microsoft Access Can't Open the Mail Session"

On the knowledge base on the MS site it says that this will happen if you
have installed Access 97 after installing MS Office 2000. However I haven't
installed Access 97 on this machine.

I am not using code for this, I am using the Mail as Attachment option from
the file menu.

Can anyone help me with this.

TIA

Stephen, Try opening the mail program before clicking on the "Mail as
Attachment".
I seem to remember this error having something to do with what is your
default mail program. If you have Outlook listed as your default mail
program you may need to change it to Outlook Express.

Regards.

Thanks Barry but I have already tried that and it didnt work. I was using
Outlook Express and even tried loading Outlook to see if it'd work then, but
didin't.
