Shell("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe /c ipm.note /m mailto:name@comcast.net&subject=Retrofits%21&body=" & txtRetrofitPartNumber.text)

I just got help with the above commmand on how to make the body a variable.  I'd like to expand on this.  Is it possible to make the mailto name a variable?  For instance mailto:txtmailname.text.  I tried using the same format as above mailto: + txtmailname.text, did not work.  Any ideas?
