I have an ms access 2k application that sends emails with a text file attachments, it works ok, but I'm using Outlook.Application CreateItem.

I need this application to work when Outlook is not installed on the client PC. I would like for this application to work with any mapi complient email product.

Does anyone have any Ideas? Maybe with some code samples.

I also will need to read emails, and attachments, again I'm using outlook.application now and it works ok, but I would like this function to work with any mapi email product also.
