using mailto attribute will work if outlook is the user's default browser.

<SCRIPT language=javascript>
function MySub()
{document.mail.submit();}
</SCRIPT>

<BODY onload="MySub()">
<form name="mail" enctype="text/plain" method="get"
action=mailto:?subject=Document&attachment="c:\temp\file.txt">
</form>
