I want to know if it's possible to invoke the Outlook 2000 'New message' form from VFP 7.0 without opening Outlook at all (all the clients have Outlook on their machine).

Thanks in advance.

Do you mean without automating Outlook? Or Just not show it?

You can send e-mail without using Outlook totally, either with MAPI sessions, or SMTP, or CDO.DLL.

Ok. Here some more infos

I want to show the new message form by automating Outlook.

I tried some code ...

  loOutlook = CREATEOBJECT("Outlook.Application")
  loNameSpace = loOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
  loMail = loNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(4)

This will create a new Outlook instance, select the Outbox folder and show Outlook interface. But whant I want is to create a new message, set the e-mail addresses and show the 'New mail' form so my user can change senders, add comments and so on.

I'm sure what you want to do. Show Outlook or not,

oOutLookObject = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
oEmailItem = oOutLookObject.CreateItem(MAILITEM)

WITH oEmailItem
   .Subject = "Automation sample"
   .Importance = 0
   .Body = "This is easy!"

RELEASE oEmailItem
RELEASE oOutLookObject

Sorry, MAILITEM should be set to 0

At the begining
