Ok Here Goes,

We currently have a setup within our application that pulls a recordset from an Oracle DB and parses it to a CF page.  From that CF page, we use CFMail to send that info out to an organization in an email.  However, our users would like to click a button on the page and have Outlook open with the populated data instead. Is there a way to do this with CF?

Thanks!
