Outlook Object Library no longer exists as reference in VB.NET??

In VB.NET, sounds like we no longer can use Microsoft Outlook Object Library
(MSOUTL.OLB)?? But Microsoft Excel and Word object library still exist.

In VB6, we can just add outlook library reference, and we can send mail
messages in VB6 application.

In VB.NET, we should use System.Web.Mail. But little bit confused why
outlook object library no longer available.

Please advice.

John,
You should still be able to use the Microsoft Outlook Object Library.

For a number of articles on using the Outlook Object Library with VB.NET
see:

Hope this helps

Hi John,

|| .. little bit confused why outlook object library no longer

Me too. I've got Office 2000 and I'm happily referencing
MsOutl9.olb (albeit via an Interop wrapper that VS created for me).

Does it depend on what version of Office you have installed,
perhaps ?

Regards,
Fergus
