How can I embedd graphics in Outlook Email without using MAPI

P: n/a

Hi,
A little while ago I wrote a small program that allowed the user to view
products from a database. The database holds the details of the products
which can be viewed via a form and additionally pictures of the product are
stored in an images subfolder and the database holds the file name of the
relevant picture. The user can then click a button to display the picture in
a pop-up window and also another button to email the potential customer with
the details and the picture embedded in the HTML formatted email.

This all worked swimmingly when the client was using Office 2000, since they
have moved to Office 2003 I get loads of problems at the point where MAPI is
accessed with the following:

Hi,
Thanks for your reply, I was hoping to report back and let you know if the
suggestion worked but I can't get access to the PC that is causing me
problems at the moment (I am remote support/development for the client) so
when I have tried these suggestions I will report back.

The main thrust of the original post though was to see if anyone had tackled
this problem without using MAPI. I have looked at loads of examples but
most people seem to be sending using SMTP directly and I have not found any
examples that use embedded graphics, most use embedded links to graphics on
a web server which isn't what I need to do, the graphics must appear within
the body of the HTML email. My existing code does this quite happily but
doesn't seem to work where the user has Office 2003 installed? However it
works fine on my own system which does have office 2003 only installed.

I have tested the application within the VS.Net environment and as a
standalone exe file and it runs fine on my system. The setup program places
the following DLL files into the program files folder:

AxInterop.SHDocVw.dll
Interop.MAPI.dll
Interop.Microsoft.Office.Core.dll
Interop.Outlook.dll
Interop.SHDocVw.dll
MSO.DLL
stdole.dll
msoutl.olb
PriceList.exe
PriceList.pdb

PriceList.exe being the main program file.

Thanks
Siv

Afraid to say the changes made in the KB article made no difference, I think
the error is in my code at the point that the MAPI login occurs.

On reading the Microsoft notes I can find on MSDN it appears that MS
don't want you creating HTML based email using calls to MAPI and suggest
that you do it using System.Web.Mail or other components.

Has anyone had this problem and found a way to create emails using
Outlook without needing to use MAPI or not using MAPI directly. I have
been scouring the NET and can't really find a solution that uses managed
code. I want to keep the email within Outlook rather than directly
sending using SMTP mail as I would like the user to have a record in
their sent items of the customers they have sent information about
products to.

Any help greatfully accepted.
