OutlookEX doesn't send mails anymore?

Hello,

For some reason the OutlookEX -integration stopped sending emails. I had it running for months without any problems, so something must have changed in Outlook, I quess. 

Symptoms are as follows:

-when trying to send an email using " _OL_Wrapper_SendMail($oOL, $distrib, "", "", $header,$body,$emailfile, $olFormatHTML)  "  @error remains not set. The mail is how ever not sent and after a while it appears in the Drafts -folder of Outlook (with content and recipient information)

-When trying to use:

Global $oItem = _OL_ItemCreate($oOL, $olMailItem, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test\TargetFolder\Mail", "", _
  "Subject=TestMail", "BodyFormat=" & $olFormatHTML, "HTMLBody=Bodytext in <b>bold</b>.", "To=xx@xxx.xx")
_OL_ItemSend($oOL, $oItem)
it sets the @extended  to -2147352567 and fails.

The wrapper version has worked before, doesn't work anymore when tested with two different computers and I am using my own email account for the purpose, no change in there either.

Any idea where the problem might be?

-2147352567 (decimal) is 0x80020009 (hex) and stands for a "General error".
Could you please insert "_OL_ErrorNotify(2)" before _OL_ItemCreate so we get more detailed error information?

Please have a look at the Wiki. Maybe the auto-shutdown feature of Outlook causes the problem.

Quote

Outlook (starting with Outlook 2007 SP2) shuts itself down if there is no open window (which is always true when Outlook was not running when _OL_Open is being called) and there is no open reference to an Outlook item (mail, appointment ...).

This is described in the following MSDN article: "Application Shutdown Changes in Outlook 2007 SP2"

So a bug in the UDF or your code can cause Outlook to shut down prematurely.

Thankyou water for this!

I thought that having Outlook Window visible in screen would be enough and a proof of it running. When I added Winactivate("Inbox") before intiating Outlook Object it started to work!
