Opening Email Client from Application

Hi Experts,

I'm developing a C++ windows application using Visual Studio 6.0. The user has the ability to

store contact information, including an email address. I want to give them the option of clicking

on a button and having the default email application (MS Outlook, etc...) open up and start a new

email with the Email Address field populated. Is there some kind of Outlook/Windows API function

call that will do this?

Thanks!

Sure, i.e.

ShellExecute(NULL,"open","mailto:user@domain.com", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOW);
