Start my Outlook from a server

I have a database that generates an email for sending out orders. The

database was originally located on my computer and worked just fine. It has

now been moved to a server. The CreateObject("Outlook.application") in the

VB code of the database opens Outlook on the server. Is there any way to

make it open Outlook on the computer of whoever is accessing the database?

Thanks.

Not only can Outlook only be run locally on that machine, but Outlook is not

suitable for running unattended or for unattended automation. Outlook shows

modal warnings and errors that require UI intervention.
