myMAPISession.SignOn()

cj

Wouldn't you know it I get all the code CMM provided typed into VB and
VB recognizes everything but when I run it and it gets to
myMAPISession.SignOn() it brings up:

Setting up Internet Mail
The Internet Connection Wizard has detected previously installed e-mail
software. You can have your Internet mail account settings imported, so
you can continue to use them with your new mail program.

Then ask me if I want to create a new mail account or import it from
Microsoft Windows Messaging or Exchange or Outlook

What's up with this? I have Mozilla Thunderbird as my defualt mail
client but I also use Outlook (not express) for another email account.
Both packages work fine and have for almost a year now. I access the
web via the company's LAN and it's up and running.

I thought this MAPI was supposed to pull up a new message in my default
mail program.

Any ideas?

You mentioned in your other thread that that you resolved this? Also, I
replied to your questions concerning displaying the Compose window.

Actually I never solved it, it just went away. Come to find out what's
going on is I have Thunderbird, outlook and outlook express all on the
pc. Thunderbird is set up for one email account and outlook for another
and outlook express came on the machine and has never been used. I
couldn't find anywhere in outlook to set it as the default email program
so I'd used start/programs/set program access and defaults to change the
default to what I thought was outlook and it was actually outlook
express which came up with the internet connection wizard as it was not
configured.

I'm trying now to find out more about how the default mail program is
actually stored. Seems I have to use IE to make outlook the default
program. Makes no sense to me but that's MS. That program I used
called "set program access and defaults" which came on my pc only showed
outlook express and current email program as choices. It didn't list
outlook or thunderbird.

I can't even find where to have outlook check to see if it's the default
mail program when it starts.

Yeah. The "IE" control panel.... Control Panel -> Internet Options ->
Programs controls this stuff. It's just MS's way of trying consolidate
settings. Thunderbird should have "registered" itself as a mail program and
should be listed in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Programs.

Set Program Access and Defaults is just a dumbed down access to what I
mentioned above. Don't use it (at least not for this).
