    Create outlook instance....

    I'm new with this and was hoping someone could
    direct me on a howto or even what to do.

    I would like to just simply create an instance of a new email via
    outlook.

    I would then read from a file and like to add text into the
    to: box.

    How do I go about doing this?
    I do not know of any Win32 API that can do this...
    Must I use COM? if so any tutorials on this?

    Thank You

    This is one way:
    Code:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/mapi/html/_mapi1book_simple_mapi_programming_examples.asp
    Note: See the menu on the left. I did the best I could with the URL.

    You need COM at least.....Scripting via VBScript is the easiest way unfortunately

    Thanks for the replies.

    I just found it odd that I could not do this from Win32 API.

    I will look into COM.

    Any differences between COM, COM+ DCOM?

    COM+ is an extension to com that is supposed to make it more friendly and more accessible to multi language use

    DCOM is more of an OS thing....you can create a COM object....register it to run on 1 PC, and then use it from other PCs as a kind of server....its pretty cool but also rather slow
