You can do this by having Access drive either Outlook or the system's default email program, but you have to do this with VBA code. If you know how to write VBA I can send you some sample code that works. There is a condition though - if the email requires attachments the code is more complex and must use Outlook. If it is just a simple text-only email then the code can be simpler and can use the system's default email program. In my case I had to accommodate attachments (up to 5 of them!) so I had to do the more complex code for Outlook.
