NEW! See my updated video for sending Email using Access and Outlook: Send Outlook Email


  • You may have to turn 2-factor authentication OFF for your Google account if you're having problems sending mail. I'd recommend creating a 2nd account just for sending mail from Access. This way your primary account is still safe and secure with 2FA.
  • You may need to make an App Password for your Google account. Go into your Google Account settings (not Gmail, your Google Account) and go to Security - Signing in to Google - App passwords. There you can setup a special username and password just for your Access app to send email thru your Gmail account. Not sure if I covered this in the seminar or not because it wasn't required at the time.

Is there a way to insert a table into the body of the email message? Right now my message looks like:
Dear Laura

To date you have completed 46 hours for your field placement at SAM Program (East Site). By the end of the week of Feb 1 - 7 64 hours should have been completed. If you are short of hours or have any questions regarding your hours please contact your Field Placement Specialist Julie Pollock (905) 575-1212 Ext. 2033.

My boss would like the lower portion to be in a table.

My code is:

Public Sub PrepareMessage()
    Forms!Email_Form_StudentFieldPlacementHours_HTML!MsgSubject = "Accumulated Field Placement Hours for  " & Fname
    Forms!Email_Form_StudentFieldPlacementHours_HTML!MsgBody = "Dear " & Fname & "

       "end of the week of " & Week4Date & "  " & ExpectedHours & " hours should have been completed. _

Are you comfortable writing HTML?
If you set the message to be HTML and not plain text you can build up a HTML Table
<table> with your tr and td etc
