Default DDE Access -> CC:Mail

Has anyone come across Access error (VBA):

"Microsoft Access Error 285: The other application can't perform the DDE function or retrieval you attempted." ?

I am calling CC:Mail from Access (VBA), with the code:
Channel = DDEInitiate("wmail", "SendMail")
Application.DDEExecute Channel, "NewMessage"

attempting to create a new message within CC:Mail, on NT4.0, CC:Mail v8.5.

(this worked fine with CC:Mail 6.5! Gggrrrr... ; )

Thanks in advance!,
Jon Buckham
