Sending Formatted Email via ShellExecute() Problem?

Hi All

I am making a dialog based application.

In one of my DlgBoxes i need to take some input from the user and email the same at some address.

Now the problem is that i am not able to format the email body properly.

I have 3 edit boxes where i prompt the user to enter his name, his company name and his email address.

Using the ShellExecute(), i am able to fill correct entries in the to: cc: subject: editboxes but the real problem comes when i try to write the body content.

Under current circumstances name,company name and email address are being displayed on the same line whereas i want them to come in seperate lines as:

Name:               X
Company Name:       Y
Email Addrss:       X@y.com

Waiting for suggestions?

Regards

Thanks tKalchev for your suggestion in my dialog based mfc application i cannot do like this.

The point is that as a result of the user entering the text in the three edit boxes i have three CString objects to deal with (Name,Company Name and Email). so first i would need to do the formatting first and then only i think i can assign the resultant string to the Body variable.

Waiting for comments.

Then simply concatenate the strings :

"mailto:" + The Email address to which you must send the email +
"?Subject=" + Desired Subject +
"&Body=Name%20%20:%20" + Name Field +  
"%0ACompany%20Name%20%20:%20" + Company Name +  
"%0AEmail%20Address%20:%20" + Email Field
