Over several years of participating in forums, and working on my own projects, I always felt it was a bit awkward to create and send new emails through Excel. Invariably, every time I found that I needed email code, I ended up heading off to a site to copy an example (usually from my colleague Ron de Bruin's excellent site
), then customizing to make it work.
The goal of this article is to provide an even easier way to add email functionality to your Excel (or any other Office) project... something easy enough for beginner coders to use as effectively as master coders. I wanted a re-usuable chunk that I could just drop into my project with ease, and I believe I've accomplished that here.
