Hello,

My application send an mail like this :

 > mailBody := 'mailto:' +operateur.mailadress + '?subject=refus&body=Line1' + #10#13 + 'Line2' ;
 > shellexecute(self.Handle,'open', pansichar( mailBody)  ,nil,nil,0);

But in my message 'Line 1' and 'Line2' are in the same line.

How can do to have 'Line2' under 'Line1' in my body ?

Thanks

Sang-Do

Hi there.

Hmm, I'm assuming this is in Delphi?  

Add HttpApp to your uses clause.  You need to encoude the #13#10 characters.  Do the following:

var
    szMailBody : String;
begin
    szMailBody := 'mailto:me@myplace.com?subject=refus&body=' + HttpEncode('Line1' + #13#10 + 'Line2');
    ShellExecute(self.Handle, 'open', PAnsiChar(szMailBody), nil, nil, 0);
end;

Hope this helps!
