Mail with Outlook Express possible?

I'm using the CreateObject method to send email from Access.

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

This, of course, launches Outlook to send the message. Anyone know if there
is a way to do the same sort of thing but have it launch Outlook Express
instead of Outlook?

DoCmd.SendObject should work if Outlook Express is set as the default mail client. This
command allows you to programmatically add a file attachment, such as a report snapshot or
rich text file.

If you want to avoid Outlook and Outlook Express all together, you can use a product such
as ASPmail or ASPQmail (queued mail). I think this works with Access, although I'm not
positive. Worldcast (http://www.fairlogic.com/worldcast/index.shtml) offers an e-mail
blaster that is free for non-commercial use. FMS offers Total Access E-mailer
(http://www.fmsinc.com/products/Emailer/index.asp) but this is definitely not free.

Randy,

You need to do a Google Groups-advanced-search.
Here you can fill in the Message-ID (without the < and > ) in a search-field
http://www.google.com/advanced_group_search?hl=en
