Problem sending email with outlook

Problem sending email with outlook

Problem sending email with outlook


I have a form which sends email with attachment from Access via vba and outlook.

All works fine except for:

1. If I use .display so the email is opened in outlook before sending, when I hit the send button in outlook, outlook closes immediately and BEFORE the message is sent.

Upon reopening outlook manually the message is sent.

If I just use .send, the code opens outlook in the background and sends the email fine - the problem is just when using .display.

I have ticked the send immediately option in outlooks advanced options.

It this a bug in outlook 2013 - or is there a work round?

Many thanks as always Mark

RE: Problem sending email with outlook

sounds a bit odd?

I have no problem with Outlook 2013 and the OOM.

How are you opening outlook? are you destroying the outlook object causing it to close?

Have a look at my FAQ : FAQ705-7667: How do I Email via Microsoft Outlook and save sent .msg Email file to a specific location.

It creates draft emails and displays them just fine.

You need to show some code so we get a feel for what you are doing and why this might be happening.
