It begs the question.... where exactly is Outlook sending mail to?
Surely it must be configured to send to a known SMTP server, or does the
Outlook/Exchange combination use some other proprietary mail protocol?

I could go one better than that. If you visit
http://www.f-secure.com/virus-info/ you get a huge list of scripts to
send e-mail using Outlook ;-) Better still you don't even have to use
your own box ;->

Under Windows without a SMTP server, only by sending messages directly
to the recipient SMTP server. In that case you may want to try this
class that can compose and send messages via SMTP and supports direct
delivery.

http://www.phpclasses.org/mimemessage

You also need these:

http://www.phpclasses.org/smtpclass

http://www.phpclasses.org/phpresolver

There is a simpler and much faster and safe way that I am testing but
you need to have IIS mail server or Exchange on Windows 2000 or better.
If you or anybody is interested in participating in the tests, just mail
me privately.

Indeed. Outlook does far than e-mail after all. Don't know what it uses
exactly. DCOM I suspect. Exchange can be configured to act as an SMTP server
however.

To send a email via the Outlook client with the help of Office Automation
(i.e. COM). Not going to be pretty though.

Yes, but there's no need (and, honestly, no way) to use the Outlook
client for that. As long as there is an external SMTP server available,
you can send mail through it using phpMailer or another similar script.

phpMailer is available at http://phpmailer.sf.net/

Thanks for your strong support! Yes, normally we are using SuSE Linux
or Slackware with all the stuff (sendmail...), but now we are in a
very restricted environment inside the intranet of an big automotive
manufacturer. And we have to use above named software. The exchange
server, running somewere in the intranet, does not listen on smtp
port, therefore I have to use the installed outlook client to forward
eMails. It is also impossible to install my own pop3 mailserver,
because all eMail clients have to be configured for the new pop3
server.

Bye, Sven

I want my users to send emails from a Windows app that I am developing in Visual Basic.NET 2003. I found a good example of sending email to a SMTP server using the SmtpMail class.

How do I create this functionality without having the user add any other...
