Office 2016 and Outlook

With previous version of office I could open the Mail Dialog by running control mlcfg32.cpl

or

run('"C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe" C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\MLCFG32.CPL",@0','C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\')

 

Control does not work with Office 2016 and the below does not work either

 

run('"C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe" C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\MLCFG32.CPL",@0','C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16')

Any one have any suggestions  ?

FYI , just found out how to do it , in case anyone else runs into this

Use the below from a run dialog and it works for office 2016

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Client\AppVLP.exe" rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\MLCFG32.CPL"

You could use my OutlookEX UDF - this works for every version of Outlook.

@HighlanderSword

If i am not whrong if you try to open a new mail you can also use

Send ({RCTRL}N)

in that case you have to open an outlook process before the send command.

Plus the Outlook window has to be active because the active window consumes the sent string.

More reliable is the OutlookEX UDF ;)
