   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?

    Accepted Solution

    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.
