MailItem.Send Method (Outlook)
Published: July 16, 2012
Sends the e-mail message.
The Send method sends an item using the default account specified for the session. In a session where multiple Microsoft Exchange accounts are defined in the profile, the first Exchange account added to the profile is the primary Exchange account, and is also the default account for the session. To specify a different account to send an item, set the SendUsingAccount property to the desired Account object and then call the Send method.
If you use Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) in an Outlook form, you do not create the Application object, and you cannot use named constants. This example shows how to forward a mail item using VBScript code.
Sub CommandButton1_Click() Set myNameSpace = Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI") Set myFolder = myNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(6) Set myForward = myFolder.Items(1).Forward myForward.Recipients.Add "Laura Jennings" myForward.Send End Sub
