I have a c# program that have a "Compose Email" button. When you press this button, the program retrieves some data from the database and creates a "to" string, "subject" string and "body" string. I have done this part. But then I want my program to execute the default mail program (normally outlook/outlook express) and start up a new mail where the "to", "subject", and "body" fields are filled out with the three strings I have created. I don't want the mail to be sent automatically, the user still has to press the send button. Can anybody please help me with this??
