Can I use Lotus Notes to send an E-mail via an intranet. I would like to create a web page with a mail icon that will send an e-mail to a particular individual via Lotus not Outlook. Can this be done via the @mailsend option?

Thanks,

AJM

Yes. It can be done using lotus notes app.

Either you can use @mailsend or enable form for mailing or use script to mail the document. For all this Domino server should be serving web pages.

So what is exactly is your requirement ?

Hello AJM,

on this web form you need only one special Form field with the name: SendTo

If you define this field to accept multiple values, then you can send this form even to multiple recipients at once.
Of course does your Domino domain need a SMTP gateway to reach the the recipients.

Mail sending is done by this @MailSend command recomanded by Hemanth or by another special field named: MailOptions

The complete description about fields controling mail send is here:

Good luck,

Thanks for the replys.

I may not have been clear enough for what I would like to do. It appears that both your responses are related to a web page "within" Notes?

The web page that I will be using is not in Notes but just a regular HTML page where you click on a link and Outlook is used for SMTP."mailto:ampapa@Att.Net"  I instead would like Notes to be the app that is used as the SMTP...

That you specify in preferences of browser. For eg: in IE, goto tools..internet options...programs tab and set the e-mail setting to Lotus notes (which will be available when the notes is installed on the computer). From their Mailto: will open Notes for default mailing.

Excellent! Exactly what I was looking for. Can the e-mail setting be changed with JavaScript?

Thanks for your help.

This is a registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail) value, which can be set through vb scripting

Using vbscript in conjunction with wsh it is possible, but js doesn't have that capability.

Check this link for an example.
