I have a Windows application which can open saved files. This is an MDI application and all saved file are opened as child windows.

The application is required to have the ability to email the opened files using the default email client. Clicking on "Email This File" should launch the email client and auto attach the file.

Any idea how to accomplish this....

If your clients are 2000 or above you can use:-

the system.web.mail namespace

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemwebmailmailmessageclasstopic.asp


has examples;

Otherwise you can use mapi via com interop.

This won't help...
1. since the application is a Windows application and not web app.
2. i need to launch default email client (like outlook, outlook express or any such client) with the file auto attached. Just like how Microsoft word does.

system.web.mail is available for use anywhere not just within web apps, the example is in ASP.NET but it can be used within WinForms Just as easily.
