Problem: Create Outlook 2010 Mail with ABAP (Outlook 2003 worked)

Hi experts,

2 years ago, i wrote an ABAP program, which created outlook mails and sent them to a special mail address.

Last week in our company we upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. Furthermore we replaced Outlook 2003 with Outlook 2010.

Since then there is a problem with my E-Mail program. Does anyone have some information what the problem might be?

That's the slice of code, which should be interessting (methtext is 'DISPLAY'):

FORM f_sendmail USING  value(gv_mail_toaddr)
  INCLUDE ole2incl.
  DATA: lr_outlook TYPE ole2_object,
  lr_mi TYPE ole2_object.

  CREATE OBJECT lr_outlook 'Outlook.Application'.

  CALL METHOD OF lr_outlook 'CreateItem' = lr_mi
    EXPORTING #1 = 0.

  SET PROPERTY OF lr_mi 'To' = gv_mail_toaddr.
  SET PROPERTY OF lr_mi 'CC' = gv_mail_ccaddr.
  SET PROPERTY OF lr_mi 'Subject' = gv_mail_subject.
  SET PROPERTY OF lr_mi 'Body' = gv_mail_body.

  CALL METHOD OF lr_mi methtext.

  FREE OBJECT lr_outlook.

Thanks for your help!

Best regards,
