Send e-mail with attachment using default email client using ASP.NET

Hi,                 In my application (web based application) a send link is there. Onclick of that I want to open the default email client on the local machine with a file attached to it and let the user enter the additional details (recipients, etc). The email client will be MS Outlook or Lotus Notes 8 or any other thing.

I have tried:
- Mailto, but this does not seem to be a very stable solution and not able to attach file to it.
- Smtp, but I am not able to open the email client before sending

I hope someone can give me some advice.
Thanks in Advance.
 Regards,Lakshmi Ramya.

the way I got it is that you can use the mailto functionality only to pass in the To, Cc, Bcc, subject and some text in the body via the querystring. I don't think there's the option to put in an image. So the alternative is that you provide the functionality to send mails from .NET in which you can add an attachment that's already on the server or you provide an upload functionality for the user to upload the attachment first. On how to do this check the formentioned links in my previous reply.

I honestly don't know. I did a quick google/live search and found that it should be possible but not exactly how.
