I am working on creating some applications to distribute with a small team where I work. Mostly just simplifying and creating some consistency with some processes. As such, I have created an application to send out an e-mail to a different team. The application sends an e-mail through outlook after collecting some information from the user.

The application works fine for me, but a co-worker who has been helping me do some bug testing has been unable to send the e-mail. I am unsure if it is because I have Outlook 2013 whereas he has Outlook 2010(I have a newer laptop and he hasn't gotten the upgrade yet). If that is the case, can I enable functionality for both?

Below is the method called when the user sends the e-mail:

public void sendEmail()
		String strName = txtName.getText();
		String strTis = txtTisFile.getText();
		String strCDs = txtCDs.getText();
		String strWorkID = txtWorkReqID.getText();
		String strQueue = txtQueue.getText();
		if (strCDs.length() == 0)
			strCDs = "N/A";				
		Display display = new Display();
        Shell shell = new Shell(display);
        Date date = Calendar.getInstance().getTime();
        SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy");
        OleFrame frame = new OleFrame(shell, SWT.NONE);
        //This should start outlook if it is not running yet
        OleClientSite site = new OleClientSite(frame, SWT.NONE, "OVCtl.OVCtl");

        // Now get the outlook application
        OleClientSite site2 = new OleClientSite(frame, SWT.NONE, "Outlook.Application");
        OleAutomation outlook = new OleAutomation(site2);

        OleAutomation mail = invoke(outlook, "CreateItem", 0 /* Mail item */).getAutomation();

        setProperty(mail, "BodyFormat", 2 /* HTML */);
        setProperty(mail, "Subject", "Taxpay Schedule - " + sdf.format(date) + " Work Request Number: " + strWorkID);
        //setProperty(mail, "From", "XXX@XXX.COM");
        setProperty(mail, "To", "XXX@XXX.COM");
        if (ccITOC == true)
        	setProperty(mail, "CC", "XXX@XXX.COM");
        setProperty(mail, "HtmlBody", "<html><body>Hello, <p> Your XXX is complete.<p>Output is located in: " + strQueue + "<p>" + strTis + ".lis<p>Work Request #: " + strWorkID + "<p>#CDs: " + strCDs + "<p>Thank you,<p>" + strName + "<p> IT Operations Center</body></html>");

      if (null != filePath) {
    	  File file = new File(filePath);
          if (file.exists()) {
        	  OleAutomation attachments = getProperty(mail, "Attachments");
              invoke(attachments, "Add", filePath);

        invoke(mail, "Send");
        catch (SWTException e)
        	JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, e.getMessage());
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e1)
        	JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, e1.getMessage());
        catch (Exception e)

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. This has been very frustrating.

Hello John,

is it possible that your co-worker uses a 32-bit Outlook and you are using 64-bit Outlook or vice versa? The used Outlook version has to correspond to the used swt version.

Kind regards,
