    Hi!

    I'm trying to automate an email procedure in which users are reminded about
    a job they have to complete if they have not completed it after 5 days. I am
    the owner (therefore, have access to send from) an email box where all of
    these jobs are sent.

    Currently, when I send an email using access, it defaults to be from myself,
    but I want to change it to be from another email address that I have correct
    permissions to send from. I am trying simply adding: .from
    ="email@address.com", however I get a run-time error '438' "Object doesn't
    support this property or method". Does anyone know how I can specify the
    email address that these emails are sent from?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't believe it's possible, but you might check the Access E-Mail FAQ
    that Tony Toews has at http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/email.htm
