Sending Email from Microsoft Access
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   7 years ago

If you want to send email from your Microsoft Access database, I have two classes that teach you how to do it.

First, the easiest and simplest solution is to use a Microsoft Word mail merge in conjunction with Microsoft Outlook. Your Access database can be used for the data source to feed a Word mail merge, sending individualized emails to Outlook. This option offers the least amount of flexibility, and is only good for small email batches (a few hundred, perhaps), but it's relatively easy to set up. I cover this in my Microsoft Access Expert Level 20 class.

Now, if you need a lot more flexibility, want to send HUGE email batches, and don't want to be limited to using Word and Outlook for creating and sending your emails, then I have a full Microsoft Access Email Seminar that covers TONS of different options. You can use a different mail provider (like Gmail), attach reports as PDFs, setup mailing lists, and lots more. Click on the seminar link to see everything that's covered.

I am a power user of Access 2007.  Can I apply the techniques you teach in Access 2007 or will there be limitations as I am not using 2010 nor 2013?

You can do the emailing directly in Access and by pass the email program itself. Read More...

I need to set up email templates so that I can email Order reports, Purchase Order reports, Invoices, etc from Access 2013, one email at a time.  The idea behind the template would be to have Access pull the email address and contact name for the customer, vendor, etc from the corresponding table, and then fill in the "SUBJECT" line, and a canned message, and then attach a PDF file of the appropriate Report, and send the email.  In other words, as automated as possible.
