I have a db developped in MS Access 97 which mainly uses external mail program
to send report of actions or data modification. E.G. whenever a new user insert
a new record in a certain table, trought a form, a new mail for the internal
mailing list is created with che MAPI server. The command used in the VBA code
is docmd.sendobject, the method sendobject of the docmd object. With sendobject,
you can specify and insert message body, message subject and fill to, cc or bcc
fields of the new message. The matter is the to (or cc or bcc: I tried them as
well) remain empty. Mozilla mail creates the new message, put che correct body
and subject but did not accept any input for the to: field. The db works well,
instead, with any other MAPI compliant mail client. We would love to switch to
Mozilla, and I personally already did, but this lack is something most of our
people would never get over. Thank you FYA.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a new mdb microsoft access database
2. write down a few line of vba code to create a new mail message using sendobject
3. e.g.:  DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , , "will@will.com", , ,
"testsubject", "testbody", True
4. run the sub on a win mapi compliant machine with mozilla mail and news
Actual Results:  
the to: field of the newly created message remainded empty

Expected Results:  
it should have filled with the value passed with sendobject, "will@will.com"

I googled the web and specially the groups and found it many other people faced
the problem. I wrote to some of them but they did not find out a solution.
