hello,

We are supposed to come up with a way to launch outlook and add an attachment progamatically. We don't have to worry about any other mail clients at this time. We don't want to use SMTPMail. Is it possible to add an attachment? I know how to use their default mail client and create a mail using mailto (like below) but as far as I know, for security reasons, mailto will not allow attachments.

using System.Text;
using System.Diagnostics;

...

string toEmail = "testr@test.com";
string subject = "This is a test Subject";
string body = "This is a test email message";
string message = string.Format("mailto:{0}?subject={1}&body={2}",     toEmail, subject, body);

Process.Start(message);

But I don't think i'll get anywhere with this. Any ideas?

Thanks!
