    Specifying the Reply to Address in email (Access 2003)

    I am building an application for a group of people that will involve quite a bit of emailing of invitations to attend functions.

    They would like to option of being able to specify a "reply to" address so that for some events acceptance can be directed to someone other than the person who sent out the invitation.

    DoCmdSendObject does not seems to support this. I think I have to use Outlook automation anyway (as they want to be able to send attachments).

    Is there any way of specifying a reply to addres with Outlook automation? If not is there any other way?

    I have just been reading about Total Access Emailer from FMS. This seems to do it, but it is not cheap.
    Regards
    John

    Yes, you can specify one or more "reply to" addresses using Automation. The MailItem object has a property ReplyRecipients; you can use code like this:

    Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem
    ' Code to create mail item
    ...
    ' Set two "reply to" addresses
    With objMail.ReplyRecipients
    .Add "bruce@this.au"
    .Add "sheila@that.au"
    End With
