    How can I open Outlook from VB?


    Hi,

    Sending a message from VB through either MAPI or Outlook works OK, but how
    can I just open Outlook with a window open showing a new message with the
    recipient filled in? Neither the Outlook.Application object nor the MailItem
    object seem to have a .visible property, so everything goes on behind the
    scenes.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    OK - I just found the .Display method in the olMailItem.
