    Hi
    Can anyone tell me how to get Access to use Lotus Notes as the default
    email? Unfortunately my company has switched from Outlook to Lotus notes. Now
    when we click on database email links Access automatically starts Outlook
    Express ( which is still installed on machines, but we only have Lotus Notes.
    Would it make any difference if we just removed Outlook and Outlook Express?
    Would Access then have no choice but to use Lotus Notes?
    Many thanks.

    The SendObject function will use whatever program is configured as the default
    MAPI client for the system. If you look in the options and help for Notes I
    should think that there is a setting somewhere that will cause it to register
    itself as the default MAPI program. I'm a bit surprised that the act of
    installing it did not do this (or at least ask you).

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!
