    Command Line email (2000)

    I'm trying to create an email message from a shortcut on the Desktop. Can anyone help me with how to successfully do this? I'd like to include the subject as well. I've used the "-c ipm.note" switch to create an email message, but I would rather use the "mailto" method described in Technet articles, and I have not been able to make them work. I am using Win2K Pro and Outlook 2000.

    Just tried this and it works:
    New mail message...
    Enter recipient(s)
    Enter subject
    Save and close.
    Drag it from your Inbox (or wherever it's been saved) onto you Desktop.
    Works again and again.
