mailto with attachments into Outlook 2003/2007/2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I use mailto with Outlook (needs to work for 2003, 2007 and 2010) with attachments?  I have a web intranet application written in ASP and VBscript that has to have this feature. The users must have their own email built from the web application and the web app needs to supply at least one file for attachment.

    I have found all sorts of messages that state code like;

    mailto:some@email.address&subject=Try%20This&attachment=""C:\Files\testfile.pdf""

    Note that I have put in the doble double quotes - I have tried it with none, two, and two pairs - and it still will not link in the attachment - NOR do I get ANY message from Outlook that it can or can not support the file attachment.

    Aternatively, is there a way to add the attachment from the web page into the open mail message through additional code?

    Thanks
