    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).
