Send Object invoking email program

P: n/a
I need to include a mail to a concerned person whenever a button is
clicked in an Access form. So I used the DoCmd.SendObject command.
However, it seems like I cannot send a long message text. Is is true?
What is the limitation on the size of the message text field? Of
course, an option is to send my long text as an attachment. This will
not be viable for me since our mail server blocks all attachments. Any
ideas?

Thanks,
Ranganath

Hi
I can't find any explicit limitations in the documentation of
SendObject or MAPI other than that it must be a string, eg 65,535
bytes in Access though maybe only half that in ASCII characters. Why
not try sending yourself some long emails.

Access 2000? SendObject is bugged.

SendObject's twenty limitations
1) Limited message length (255 characters, I believe.)

For alternatives see

Your mail server blocks all attachments? That's ridiculous.
