Let's examine a few of the issues with the above code.
1. If textboxcontrol does not have focus, run-time error 2185 is raised. This can be avoided by explicitly setting the focus before attempting to get the .Text property, but such efforts are not required with the .Value property.
2. You can't be sure if textboxcontrol is Null or not. Because the .Text property is of type String it can not contain Null, even if the control is Null - in contrast, since .Value is of type Variant, you can distinguish between a Null and a ZLS value in the control.
3. The .Text property must be explicitly specified. However, since the .Value property is the default property of a control, it is not required. This is not a positive or negative point, just informational - some people like to explicitly specify .Value even if it is not required.
The main difference between the .Text and the .Value is that the former contains the current control data, and the latter contains the last saved control data. This means that often the two properties return the same value. In those cases where they do return the same value, .Value is preferable because it does not have the issues listed earlier.
Following this thinking, the only time the .Text property is required is when one needs to deal with what a control currently contains, rather than the saved data, such as examining what the user is typing, keystroke by keystroke.
Bulk email, also referred to as gray mail, is a type of email message that’s more difficult to classify. Whereas junk email is a constant threat, bulk email is typically comprised of an advertisement or marketing message that’s not likely to get sent repeatedly. Bulk email is wanted by some users, and in fact they may have deliberately signed up to receive these messages, while other users may consider these types of messages to be spam. For example, some users want to receive advertising emails from the Contoso Corporation or invitations to an upcoming conference on cyber security, while other users consider such emails to be spam.
