    Hi, I have the following problem:
    I have a text box that contains an e-mail address and a button (on a form),
    that "on click" calls the vb statement "DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , ,
    "BCC address", , , "subject", "body".
    The .mdb file is Access 2000 version.
    When I'm trying through Windows 2000, it works fine!
    When I try to do the same thing using Windows XP (another PC), it appears
    the error message 2287 (cann't open your default mail client).
    I uninstalled and installed again the office 2000 in the Windows XP system,
    but I get the same error msg. Any Ideas?? Please help...

    Has a different application been set up as the default e-mail client on the
    second machine?

    I had the same problem. You need to have MS Outlook installed (even if you
    don't use it).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
