FAQ - My corporate email client isn't supported by the Auto FE Updater.

It is surprisingly difficult to find sample code which allows me to create a new email in HTML format without a recipient.  There's lots of code to send emails available but that's not what I need.    The code to create and view an email can be very different than the code to send an email.   In particular I'd like to get IBM Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise supported.   I'm quite interested in getting your email program working so please let me know.  These are the kinds of technical programming challenges I enjoy!

If you would like your email client supported please email Auto FE Updater technical support.   In the Auto FE Updater go to Help >> About Installed Email Clients and click on the Copy to Clipboard button to include the details in your email.   Also

For the quickest solution please prepare a subroutine in Access VBA which works on your system.  The requirements are
 - create a new email with a subject and body but not send it;
 - must have a subject and a body but no recipient;
 - HTML format so a hyperlink can be created in the email
 - uses late binding so no reference is required.  See  Late Binding in Microsoft Access at my website for more information.
This can be done in any version of Access from 97 and newer.

I also want to have URLs to sample code and documentation on the software vendors website so I can easily add some features in the future.   I'll also need a URL to the client software so I can download a trial version.

Also in the Auto FE Updater go to Help >> About Installed Email Clients and click on the Copy to Clipboard button to include the details in your email.
