email using sendobject in access

This code works great on my computer to open the email program and input the
email address, subject, and text:

DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , , Me!EMAIL, , , "subject text", "message
text"

when I run the program from someone else's computer I get an error message
about SendObject not available.

They get mail from MSN and Yahoo. Outlook Express is on the computer and
that is what I use, just don't think they use it. Could it be there isn't a
default email program on the computer? Can I set up Outlook Express to open
when the DoCmd. sendObject is run?

Probably a missing reference. Not sure which one, but check if any have the
word "MISSING:" in front of it.

Chances are they've never run an email program at all including
Outlook Express so nothing as been configured as a default email
client. So ask them to run Outlook Express. Trouble is they will
then need an SMTP/POP3 email address somewhere. And if folks reply to
these sent emails they will need to check that email address
occasionally or forward email to another email account they use.
