Alternative code for "mailto"

P: 12
'm attempting to send a mailto: and include a link in the body. Has anyone done this?
I have one problem with this.
One appln have a link to send an email using “mailto:”.
Previosly this funtionality was using with outlook as default email client, recently clients migrated to Lotus Notes and it is not working.
Body part of mail message will get appended to the subject portion.
The problem is with one link in the email body is having ? symbol. We tried with alternative options like encoding ,but not working. Even if it is escaped, it will not work.
Guys, Can u please suggest any alternative options….. If u r free…..

My problem is with the body part.
1)Body part contains two links, which is having '?' for passing arguments.
2)Also body content is greater than 200 characters....
Both these conditions will have problems in Notes.
If the '?' is escaped also, it will not take.
In outlook it works fine, but in Lotus notes if any of these two conditions occured, it will get appended to subject portion, when the mailto: pops up the default email client
