    Sending email from Access (2003)

    I need some help getting started on this part of a project. I have a database that users request information by entering some fields on a form. Once they click on submit, I want to send an email to them as well as the project leader confirming the request. We use Lotus Notes. I think I will use the sendobject command but I am lost. If at all possible, I would like to add this form on our website as well.

    Please provide some directions.

    If you want to send just some text, you can do it like this (the names are just examples)

    Dim strMsg As String
    strMsg = "Dear customer," & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
    "This e-mail is to confirm your order for " & Me.txtQuantity & " widgets, dated " & _
    Me.txtOrderDate & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "Yours sincerely," & vbCrLf & "Deborah P."
    DoCmd.SendObject To:=Me.txtEmail, Cc:="", Subject:="Order confirmation", _
    MessageText:=strMsg, EditMessage:=False
