    Command-Line email (O2K SR1-a)

    I know I use mailto: to open an email that is addressed...

    What do I add for the email to also have BCC, CC, and/or Subjet info already filled in?

    Regards,

    This doesn't seem to be super-well documented anywhere, does it? You can fit a lot in, but if you read over the FrontPage, Internet Explorer and Web Design boards, you will find that there are some limitations. In particular, I don't think I've seen anyone come up with a way to insert line breaks in the body part.

    Try something like this:

    Jefferson:

    Thanks... it worked great with aminor mod: the "?" before "cc" I used a "&" instead...

    It didn't work with the ? in that position? That's strange, but then, you might be working in a different context. I tested it as a link in a web page, opened in IE.

    Jefferson:

    Two things:

    Firstly, I'm running this right from my desktop and/or Start Menu, not IE...
    Secondly, I miscopied the line I actually am using, anf the "?" DOES work. The line is::
    mailto:abc@def.com/?cc=ghi@jkl.org&bcc=mno@pqr.us&subject=It's time to talk&body=Call me!

    So all is well...

    Thanks again.

    Everything works for me as described - great. Is it possible to add an attachment with this syntax?

    I'm not aware of any way to add an attachment. Perhaps there's a W3C official syntax for this that would definitively answer the question, and then a Microsoft "extensions" page that would answer it for IE? <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
