How to send email through the default user email client


I am still struggling with this issue:

I have a list of product in my page, beside every product there is a button named 'Send to a friend'

i want when a user click on that button to open his default email client and throw a link of the product into the body of the new message

I am using standard 'mailto' html function, but it does not allow me to format the body of the message instaed it just throw the html code as it is.

not as html

i would be really appreciated if i can get any help

thank s

 This isn't really a issue but i found this javascript which could be of use however it's stated as only working in Internet Explorer. Have you thought about sending the email via your emailserver instead of relying on the client as i find most people use hotmail/gmail and dont set it as default therrfore outlook opens and annoys people.


function OpenOutlookDoc()

var outlookApp = new ActiveXObject("Outlook.Application");
var nameSpace = outlookApp.getNameSpace("MAPI");
mailFolder = nameSpace.getDefaultFolder(6);
mailItem = mailFolder.Items.add('IPM.Note.FormA');
mailItem.Subject="a subject test";
mailItem.To = "";
mailItem.HTMLBody = "<b>bold</b>";
mailItem.display (0);
// act on any error that you get

I have a Client Registration form (.aspx) which, on submitting, transfers the input data to an Access database which allocates an AutoNumber to the new record. The Client Registration form redirects on Submit to another aspx page which contains a SELECT MAXOF query to display the client's Registration Number (i.e. the highest number is the latest and therefore that visitor's unique reference which he...

Using ALTAS to Send Email (Email Form)
Hello all. I have yet to find anywhere an example on how one might use the underlying ATLAS API (not the fancy controls that come with it) to send a simple email from a simple webform. Can anyone point one out for me? Or maybe someone has an example tucked away somewhere that they might want to let out ino the public?

can we default bcc to user B whenever user A sends emails out
can we default bcc to user B whenever user A sends emails out Andy Wong wrote: > can we default bcc to user B whenever user A sends emails out Not sure if this would work, but you could try it. Create a rule in User A's mailbox that says when a new item is sent, item type mail, forward the item to User A (you can't create a mail with only a BC or CC) and BC it to User B. But this would only work if every mail must be BC'ed to the same person. If you need different mails BC'ed to different people then I don't believe there's a way. -- Joe...
