Outlook Namespace object doesn't have .SendAndReceive - should it?

Outlook Namespace object doesn't have .SendAndReceive - should it?

Outlook Namespace object doesn't have .SendAndReceive - should it?

I'm trying to force Outlook to send an email which I've added to the Outbox:


Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
   Set olNs = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
   olNs.SendAndReceive False 

The documentation suggests that the NameSpace object should have a .SendAndReceive method but mine doesn't. I'm assuming that's because I'm on Outlook 2003 and it was added in 2007. If I compile the code with that line in, should it work for people running Outlook 2007 or newer?

Yes, it should.
