Use the CreateItem method to create a MailItem object that represents a new mail message. The following example creates and displays a new mail message.

Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set myNamespace = myOlApp.GetNamespace("MAPI") Set myFolder = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) myFolder.Display Set myItem = myFolder.Items(2) myItem.Display
