Is Mail Running?

Use this code to quickly determine whether Microsoft Mail is currently running:
 
Declare Function GetModuleHandle Lib _
	"Kernel" (ByVal lpModuleName As String) As Integer
Function IsMicrosoftMailRunning ()
On Error GoTo IsMicrosoftMailRunning_Err
IsMicrosoftMailRunning = GetModuleHandle("MSMAIL")
IsMicrosoftMailRunning_Err:
	If Err Then
		'Do whatever you need to here
	End If
End Function
You can also use this method to determine if just about any particular program is running. Simply replace the Mail references with the appropriate name you are looking for.
