    Try this action against button / text or whatever ..

    File / Open mailto:[email protected]

    You can also enter a subject, tho' I'm not sure how compatable this is with all EMail apps.

    by putting -

    mailto:[email protected]?Subject = You really are wonderful !

      John-oh,

      Thanks for the Info that's what i was needing also. Question what if the customer doesn't have Outlook or Lotus Notes? My test system has Lotus notes & Outlook, both worked fine. I'm wondering if this will work if they use a alternate email system. Hotmail, Yahoo, and etc...??

        I am sure there is a way to set up a test for an application to see if the system has a default viewer for sending e-mail and if this check were to fail that you could then pop-up a dialog box stating that an e-mail application was not found on their system and they should contact you another way or you could give them your e-mail so they could use yahoo or something else.

          I have been working on a Registry.DoesKeyExist. Look for <font color=green>HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto</font color=green> or <font color=green>KEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Handler\mai lto</font color=green> or maybe ever <font color=green>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ma ilto</font color=green> as your test. I would think that if either of these exist that it will open the mailto function in a viewer. If not pop open a dialog box

          Try this
          <IR_ACTIONS_LIST>

                For all you 'mailto' fans -

                Try this
                http://developer.netscape.com/viewsource/husted_mailto/mailto.html

                It's even got a mailto builder, its for web design really, but the principles the same.

                Have fun.
