SendObject using a particular Email Client

P: n/a

Is there a way to have Access 2002 open a particular email client, when
using DoCmd.SendObject? So far, Access simply opens the default email
client that is set under Control Panel/Internet Options.

I would like to open the email client for Netscape Communicator 4.78,
or Netscape 7.1. I'm not very sure, but I think calling these email
clients might have something to do with dll files.

I am using the following code:

DoCmd.SendObject , , , , , , , , True
Many thanks

Marcus

SendObject will always use the default MAPI client. If an alternative
client is OLE compliant then you can use automation to use it to send Email,
but not with SendObject.

And good luck getting sendobject to work with netscape 7.x, anyway. In
A2003, it refuses to assign the to address. Blinking annoying - I'm
eventually going to get the MS Techs to help me do this with Netscape
once I get around to it.
