mailto-link with umlauts


does anyone know how to encode umlauts so if you use a mailto in your browser the notes-client starts and has umlauts like äöüß .. in the body. Actual we use something like

starting the notesclient works so far, but the umlauts are scrambled (or does the above works on windows, there the umlauts are enecode in utf8). Does anyone has a link to notes documentation where the commandline options are described, how the mailto must be formated to work for notes

You should have told us that you don't use Notes R7. It works in R7, except for the non-blanking space...

Proof should be in your mail right now...
Use @Domino([Encode]) and @Domino([Decode])

We use php to create HTML-pages where the mailto-link occurs and on the webserver there is no lotus domino installed.
Are these functions part of the domino framework or how do I use them? I don't need URL in the mailbody, the mailbody can contain german umlauts and those umlauts should occur in the new opend notes mail-window

I guess the next problem will be http:Q_21159452.html so the length of what can be passed to the notes client is limited, but that is a thing we will not be able to change :-(
I don't have any other idea..

Lets wait for other experts..

The non breaking space should occur as " " and not as " " ;-) It's just for testing and checking if escaping is working properly. The users use notes R 6.5.3. So it its workings with Notes R7 ists ok (also work in that case with kmail, evolution)
