mailto with body

Hi experts,

i want to send an email+body with the mailto-href.
i built the following input-tag :

<input style="width:110px;" type="button" value="Meldung als Email" onClick="javascript:buffer='mailto:?body='+escape(window.parent.frames[1].document.getElementById('text').innerHTML);window.location.href=buffer.substring(0,455)">;

It works with 0-454 characters. With more characters  i get the error : The standard-mail-client is not correct installed.

Exists another way to mail out of the browser or how can i avoid the error ?

Thanks

Stephan

Unfortunately, i don't think there is a workaround on the character limit unless you go server-side...practically no limit there.  (possibly a limit depending on the server & language, but should be in the many many thousands of characters range).

Sorry.

If you do go server-site, you may wish to use FormMail.  It is superior to mailto, is flexible and reliable.

mplungjan din't answer correctly as author have written he wants no server-side scripting...
anyway, you can't place more than (average) 512 characters, as Outlook breaks after 2048 chars, Outlook Express breaks a bit under 512.

I don't have to be answering this question to place a comment, I used to be EE Cleanup Volunteer myself.

What i am saying here is that there is no client-side solution fot this problem and as gawehns don't want to use server-side that question shouldn't be PAQ'd that way.

No, it's not. Additionaly it's not worth 200pts anyway...

>>>No, it's not. Additionaly it's not worth 200pts anyway...
It may not be, but i nor can anyone else except the questioneer ask for the points to be reduced.

According to the EE guidelines, NO is an acceptable answer.

Now we can end this here or you can go to CS and talk to them all you want to, but i have more questions to cleanup and i am sure michel has some to along with our day jobs also. So if you are not satisfied then i suggest you go talk to CS or i can have them talk to you.

End it here or CS?
