    Obviously the other option is the exchangeconnector28
    A dataflex package and dll that talks natively to your exchange server or office 365.

    Although I need to update the website, there is also a command line option now, that vdf7 and even 3.2 Dos shops use for their customers to send their program emails via exchange.

    +1 for Chilkat. Put them between you and the ever changing Microsoft world.

    This depends on if you want the user to be able to see/edit the email in outlook before sending and if you want to see it in the users "sent" folder after they've sent it.

    If no to both of these, then use CHILKAT.
    If you want to populate an email which is presented to the user, then use a DLL wrapper around the Outlook .NET API
    If you want to see an email in the users "SENT" folder, then use outlook 365 and the outlook REST API

    There is always COM automation of Outlook which works fine so long as you have an up to date AV that is recognised by the Windows security centre otherwise you will get pop-ups

    Code we wrote for 2007 still works for 365 so they have not messed with in the interface too much over the years

    Thanks everyone! Very valuable input (as usual). Going to throw all these options and around a little and see what come to the top.
    Thanks
