Auto-Fill an e-mail address in an outlook message

P: 5
Greetings!

I am using Access 2003

I have a form. "Contacts" which has the standard information on it such as address, phone e-mail address etc. I wish to have a command button next to the e-mail field of this form and when clicked have it take the e-mail address that is in the field and open a blank outlook e-mail window and automatically put the e-mail address in the "To" field. This seems to be a pretty difficult thing to do, but is there a way?

Any help would be appreciated. I used to have a whole head of hair!

Start with Application Automation. Get the basics done then come back and we'll see what is still required to make it work. It should certainly be do-able. Sending emails can be a pain due to MS's clumsy security features, but simply creating the email should be fine.
