Hi jpcs,

Hi jpcs,

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
       var
         TempUrl : string;
       begin
         TempUrl:='mailto:tom.deprez@village.uunet.be?subject=Your subject&body=test body';

       ShellExecute(Application.Handle,'open',PChar(TempURL),nil,nil,SW_NORMAL);
       end;

you can use this for outlook, but I don't think it's possible to send attachements.

To send attachments, use MAPI, but Outlook isn't MAPI compliant.  Exchange is.

So, I guess you've to make a tough descision.

Zif.

I do not entirly understand your question.

Do you want to start a email message box from Outlook without starting outlook entirly? Or do you want to create a message compatible with outlook?

jpcs:::      to use ShellExecute, you have to add SHELLAPI to the Uses clause

( uses  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Cla... )

hey Zif, it works perfectly !

Sorry for the delay... been absent.

I can't accept the answer, because Outlook is possible to the  MAPI client as default (set it up in options), and I know it's possible to do wat I want, since Photo Shop 5 does it... (If you have an image opened and click on send in the File menu, it opens outlook in a new message and the message is in the attachments section.

Sorry.
