   On a web page i have to create a link of form:

  The link works fine in Outlook, Mozilla and Thunderbird, but &cc and &body parameters are not interpreted in Lotus Notes.

How should i modify the link to create a message with body and cc which will be recognized by Lotus Notes?

Thank you,

It will probably be very difficult, the Notes built-in browser is rather "compatibut". Which version of Notes are you referring to?

I had a requirement to do this and eventually found out that it is not supported (at least all the way to R6.5.3).

The only other way to do it is get a bit smarter with a web form that captures the detail and submits it as an email - but you will need to get the user to login if you want it to come from them.

Notes does not implement all fields.  Sorry, that's it.

Incorrect.  This is one of those "sorry you can't do that" answers,which prett much everybody concured with.
