Re: Trouble using Mail::Outlookby ColonelPanic (Friar)

My first thought is: what are you trying to do, and can you do it without calling Outlook?
Outlook varies greatly between versions. Some versions are very buggy, as I have learned by painful experience (I tried to automate some Outlook functions through VB, only to encounter showstopper bugs in Outlook that killed the entire project). In addition, the Mail::Outlook module has not been updated in several years. That is bound to be problematic as new versions of Outlook come along.
Here are some other options for sending email:
This discussion of sending email from Windows, though old, might still be useful.
In my opinion, unless your task specifically requires Outlook, you will probably do better with a non-Outlook solution.
Addendum: I did try to install Mail::Outlook and test your code, but the module installation failed. Does this prove my point or only my own laziness? You decide.
