What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Find  a command like this:
ShellExecute( 0, 'Open', PChar('mailto:somebody@somewhere.com?Subject=Hey!&body=Test ), nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL )
It seems could use ?Subject and &body automatically fill Subject and body field, which parameter used for attachement?

Epsylon is right.

By using ShellExecute you cannot attach files to the e-mail.  Only by handling MapiSendMail directly you can attach files.

shekou, please read the question again.
