    Probably best of using CDO, but you'll have to dive into COM programming first!

    So there is't some kind of folder that the outbox messages are stored in?

    Yes there is, but they are not stored as plain text. Also putting something there will acheive nothing. You need to enter into a dialogue with Outlook which requires the techniques discussed above.

    I googled it, no help. I don't understand most everything discussed.
    Does anyone know of a tutorial or somthing that isn't so complicated?

    The following Simple MAPI sample will add a message to the outbox of OE or whatever email client has installed itself as the default MAPI client. A security dialog will be shown before the message is sent. There are a couple of email samples here. They require the DispHelper library.
    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <mapi.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    ULONG xSendEmail(PSTR szSubject, PSTR szMessage, PSTR szRecipient)
    {
    	HMODULE        hMapi         = NULL;
    	LPMAPISENDMAIL pMAPISendMail = NULL;
    	MapiMessage    msg           = { 0 };
    	MapiRecipDesc  recip         = { 0 };
    
    	recip.ulRecipClass = MAPI_TO;
    	recip.lpszAddress  = szRecipient;
    
    	msg.lpszSubject  = szSubject;
    	msg.lpszNoteText = szMessage;
    	msg.nRecipCount  = 1;
    	msg.lpRecips     = &recip;
    
    	hMapi = LoadLibrary(TEXT("mapi32.dll"));
    
    	if (hMapi)
    	{
    		pMAPISendMail = (LPMAPISENDMAIL) GetProcAddress(hMapi, "MAPISendMail");
    
    		if (pMAPISendMail)
    		{
    			return pMAPISendMail(0, 0, &msg, 0, 0);
    		}
    
    		FreeLibrary(hMapi);
    	}
    
    	return ERROR_INVALID_DLL;
    }
    
    
    int main(void)
    {
    	ULONG ret = xSendEmail("Test Message", "Hello world!\r\nThis is a test.", "none@example.com");
    
    	if (ret == SUCCESS_SUCCESS)
    	{
    		printf("Success!\n");
    	}
    	else
    	{
    		printf("Failed with error code %d.\n", ret);
    	}
    
    	getchar();
    	return 0;
    }

    Thanks a lot anonytmouse.

    Is there a way I can delete a message in the sent folder?
