I am using FileExec in Delphi with MailTo:'filename.eml' and the .eml file correctly comes into a send message in Outlook Express. Is there code I can add to the .eml file to position the cursor at the end of the body text?  Or something else?
Thanks in advance

After loading the .eml file, you can enumerate the windows to locate the message window. Then you can send some windows message commands to focus the body and scroll to the bottom. I tested this code using OE 6 and Windows XP Pro.

add these enumeration functions to your app

function EnumChildProc(Handle: HWND; Info: Pointer): BOOL; stdcall;
var
  txt: array [0..255] of char;
  place:WindowPlacement;
  p:array[0..1] of WORD;
begin
  Result := True;
  GetClassName(Handle, txt, sizeof(txt)-1);
  if StrPas(txt)='Internet Explorer_Server' then
  begin
    GetWindowPlacement(Handle, @place);
    //Scroll to the bottom, this works
    PostMessage(Handle, WM_VSCROLL, SB_BOTTOM, 0);
    //focus and position cursor, simulates left mouse click
    p[0]:=0;
    p[1]:=place.rcNormalPosition.Bottom-place.rcNormalPosition.Top-10;
    PostMessage(Handle, WM_LBUTTONDOWN, 0, integer(p));
    PostMessage(Handle, WM_LBUTTONUP, 0, integer(p));
  end;
end;

function EnumWindowsProc(Handle: HWND; Info: Pointer): BOOL; stdcall;
var
  txt: array [0..255] of char;
begin
  Result := True;
  GetClassName(Handle, txt, sizeof(txt)-1);
  if StrPas(txt)='ATH_Note' then
  begin
    Result:=false;
    EnumChildWindows(Handle, @EnumChildProc, 0);    
  end;
end;


call the primary windows enumeration after the .eml has been loaded. it may be necessary to pause the app to give OE time to load...
procedure TForm1.SpeedButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  EnumWindows(@EnumWindowsProc, 0);
end;
