    Hi,

    The mailto: command is very useful,  but not so useful when a large chunk of HTML formatted body text must also be sent.

     

    I want my application to to create a full new mail message (in the default mail client, usually Outlook), which the user can then modify and send. Specifying mailto: someid ?body=XXX  will not suffice, as the body text is too long and must be HTML formatted.

     

    Is there any alernate to using the mailto command.

     

    Thank you

    There isn't.

     

    You application should send the mail itself. Consider using the RichTextBox control.
