    SendObject Wont Open Mail Session (Access 97, Windows 98)

    I am attempting to use the DoCmd.SendObject to send a notification message to a user when a process completes. This application works on two different networks, the other one being on NT.

    On the NT platform it works fine. If the mail session isn't open it will prompt you for the passwords then open it. On my Win 98 network (Ethernet), it just returns an error #2287, Microsoft Access can't open the mail session. Check your mail application and make sure it is working properly.

    Okay, I am using Outlook 2000, it is running, And I sent a test message through it and it works fine. I opened up Access 2000 and tried the same DoCmd SendObject code and it works there, so it appears it is a version issue. Is there something I can do to Outlook to make it work with both versions or am I limited to fixing it within Access?

    Version of what, Windows, Outlook, Access ...?

    It isn't clear from you message which version of which OS or application you're asking about. Office 2000 is usually very happy to simply open other Office apps when you need them, so discount that. What version of Outlook are you running on the Win98 machine?

    I use DoCmd.SendObject from ACC97 utilizing Outlook 2000 without a problem. Just a thought, you don't have more than one version of Outlook installed do you? <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Interesting that it works on your system.

    I just did a search for all occurrances of OUTLOOK.EXE on my HDD and found only one. When I installed it initially I first installed Access97 (Only), then installed the entire Office 2K Professional - accepting the option to leave Access97 to run on its own separately from Access 2K.

    So, I guess the short answer to your question is that Outlook 97 was never installed.

    Mike,
    I'm grasping at straws here, what is your default email program in explorer ?

    Ummmmmm....I never actually set that up so I don't know. I'm using IE5.

    I'm also running a repair on the office programs using the CD
