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.

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.
