We would probably need to know a bit more, like what version of VB you're using.

However, I think you'll find an answer fairly quickly using the Search box at the top of the page, as I'm pretty sure the subject has been covered here before.

Please don't post your e-mail address. See the posting guidelines for more info. Especially the section 'Things that are generally unacceptable'.

If you want people to e-mail you, they can do it from the TSDN "Control Panel" - as long as you turn the option on.

Hello,

Recently I had the same problem and that is the best article I could ever found in internet:
http://www.everythingaccess.com/tuto...curity-Warning

It helped me a lot. Read carefully there are 3 possibilities. The one where you have to insert code in Outlook is the one I used.

The other possibility which is not mentioned in this article is sending the email using some SMTP command prompt. There are several freeware software you can find, but a good approach is:
http://www.softstack.com/freesmtp.html

For others, try those keywords in Google: Free SMTP Prompt

Good Luck,

William

Well, you could try out these links...

http://www.example-code.com/vb/vbSimpleSend.asp
http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=109

Or, I found this on another forum (won't say which one, I don't want to get into trouble) - I haven't tried it, but it sounds promising, even though you indicated you didn't want to use smtp...
You can download the smtp.ocx which is freely available on the net. Its damn easy to use it to send mails.

SITE IS http://www.vb4all.net/

you can get the smtp.ocx from the site below:
http://www.vb4all.net/products.asp?id=41

or a free download from the site
http://www.filebot.org/Development/A...item2244-2.htm


Also there is sample code on this site which uses MAPI TO SEND EMAIL.
http://www.vb4all.net/source.asp?id=0&id2=42

I myself have used this smtp.ocx in an industry application and it works fine.
