Launch default e-mail client with attachment

Hello,

How do I launch default e-mail client (Otulook, Eudora...) with attachment?
mailto: does not support attachments and SMTP does not open the default
e-mail client.

Hi Kurt,

As far as I know you cannot and I thought that it was simple because of the
fact that not all mailclients supports attachments. (I am with this not
talking about the Office Exchange client).

(I have until now never seen a solution for what you ask while it is very
often asked)

You would have to resort to the native programmable support for each e-mail client (or underlying
transport). There is no standard RFC spec for handling attachments.

i dont think it is possible to put a <a href> link to do attachments, as
it will just be a security problem. imagine having ppl clicking a link
and you get them to attach something from their local computer? i gather
you are trying to do this on the client side, as you mention using
mailto:.

however, if you are attaching the attachment from the server, you can
use the smtpmail class under system.web.mail namespace.
