ASP Email, a new twist
Posted on 2007-04-04
I have an access database I'm accessing through ASP. I have ASP pages that show a snapshot of information about a record or person. I want to email them that information as a confirmation. I DON'T want to autoemail it through the server using CDO. I want to generate an email with all the data I've defined in the BODY of the email, and (if possible) a Subject line I choose, and view/edit the email before I send it.
I can't use the A HREF:MAILTO function because it cuts off the number of characters in the body, and I want a full page (with formatting). I also can't use that function because it doesn't allow spaces in my Subject line.
I use CDO to auto-send emails, but that's not what I want to do, I want to see the email in front of me for last minute verification and alteration before I send it.
I know how to take an ASP page and tell it to become an Excel file, and I tried the same thing to make it become an Outlook file, but it didn't work.
What can I do to generate an email with all my data and formatting in the body, a subject line that contains spaces and hopefully even the Email address filled in?
