Since i don't have Outlook Express installed (to be honest, I'm allergic to O and OE), can someone test this script with it ? (don't forget to change the destination address)
code:

$Root = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
$MailItem = $Root.CreateItem(0) ; olMailItem object
$MailItem.Importance=2
$MailItem.Subject = "Automation Test"
$MailItem.To = "Please edit me@I_really_want_it" ; Multiple element can be separated with ;
$MailItem.Body = "this is a test sample of a future SendMail UDF()"
$MailItem.Send

TIA

I had tested it with OE5.5 SP2.
I got the following error:
Script error : unknown command !
$MailItem.Importance=2

UPDATE: By every command who starts with $Mailitem. I get this error.

Maybe it's handy to know that I haven't Outlook installed only Outlook Express.

I've got my answer, thanks
In fact, I was wondering if Outlook Express had the same automation object than Outlook, and the result you got show that it's not the case. Damn M$

Add this to be sure just after the createobject:
? "" + @serror

I'm running this on winXP and office XP

It prompted me with the "A program is trying to automaticall send e-mail on your behalf. Do you want to allow this? "
Yes/No/Help

It will sort of work...

So it's clear that it will work with Outlook but doesn't work with Outlook Express.
Maybe a new project?

Outlook is installed with Ms Office.
Outlook Express is his little brother, completely free(!) and without some (most of ?) features
On the other hand, i didn't know that Ms add this messagebox. Well, a sendkeys("Enter") will be enough.

Thanks guys

Alex,

Does this work for you?

code:

BREAK ON CLS
; -- Ref - http://cwashington.netreach.net/depo/view.asp?Index=192&ScriptType=vbscript
;Set theApp = WScript.CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
$Root = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
$theNameSpace = $Root.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
$theNameSpace.Logon "profile", "password"
$theMailItem = $Root.CreateItem(0)

$theMailItem.Recipients.Add "dyerkb@myrealbox.com"
$theMailItem.Subject = "Your Subject Here"
$theMailItem.Body = "Your message here."
$theMailItem.Send
$theNameSpace.Logoff

HTH,

- Kent

Duh!
NTDOC,
You need some rest (me too). Please, correct this by adding a second @ in the address.

kdyer,
Please do the same and retest.

Radimus and awinkel,
did you think to correct it when you tested the script ?

Okay Alex... Your right, I was not even really looking at the code. I took it at face value and ran it.

adding the @ to the address so that it is @@ works fine on my system.

Alex,

Works great!

Couple of suggestions..

After the send piece, I added:
$Root.Quit
$Root = ""

To cleanly close out of Outlook.

Have a look at - http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/InterDev/SendMail.htm and there is a "test function" to see if Outlook is open and if not, it closes it otherwise, it remains open.

Thanks!

- Kent

it works, but the Outlook security still blocks it... oh well you can't have everything.

MS will be pissed if you guys figure out how to send Anthrax through Outlook... as that is the only virus to not be propigated using MS software...

It works excellent.
. Is there a way to send attachment with the e-mail?
Is there a way to place active shortcut in the e-mail body.
Thank you.

I didn't really get a look to this part, only the possbility to send a mail when all is getting wrong, something like :
Hey sucker, your f$^ script don't work at all unless the sendmail for this user : ... Now go and correct this and don't ever mind to sleep this night.

But you should get a look to the link kdyer provide, the attachment part is at the end (in VB, but easy to transcribe).
