It is possible to set the body of an email from the construct of a mailto,
but it's subject to the limits of a URL (because it is one,) which gives
you all of 2kb for address, subject and body.

Typically ASP sites use CDONTS/CDOSYS (depending on server O/S) to generate
rich email.

But in case you're able to work within these constraint, the syntax is:

mailto:re***@domain.com?subject=the%20subject&body =URL%20escaping%20rules%20apply
-Mark

address book so i can easily pich up email address from my outlook and send
it to consern persion..

And that will _sometimes_ work with _some_ email clients.
