We no longer use MAPI for Outlook given that on Windows 64 with Outlook 
64, MAPI causes a bunch of issues called from a 32 Bit application - 
even as trivial as the background stationery not happening correctly.

So instead we now use COM/automation (Ole in old speak) to send emails 
when Outlook is the default mail application and it just works.

This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software.
