    In the Help Topic, "Sending Email From Scripts", there are three sections. I was able to resolve my problem by using the third option "Via Microsoft Outlook" I have to be sure to close my Outlook session before I leave each evening but my script can build an HTML body and then send it using code similar to the following example.


    dim outlook
    Set outlook = Sys.OleObject("Outlook.Application")
    dim body
    body = "<html xmlns:v=""urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"" xmlns:o=""urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"" xmlns:w=""urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word"" xmlns:m="""" xmlns="""">"
    body = body + "<head>"
    body = body + "<META HTTP-EQUIV=""Content-Type"" CONTENT=""text/html; charset=us-ascii"">"
    body = body + "<meta name=Generator content=""Microsoft Word 15 (filtered medium)"">"
    body = body + "</head>"
    body = body + "<body lang=EN-US link=""#0563C1"" vlink=""#954F72"">"
    body = body + "<div>"
    body = body + "<....a lot more html tags including  <a href=""file://filename.ext"">Link Text</a>.....>"
    body = body + "</div></body></html>"
    Dim mi
    Set mi = outlook.CreateItem(0)
    mi.BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
    mi.Subject = "Test Results"
    mi.HTMLBody = body
    mi.To = ""
