Lotus Notes View to Memo - Open/Compose new mail memo without sending

Hi, I'm looking for a way to dynamically generate an email report in R5 from a particular view (using LotusScript via an action button) however *without* sending the email. Each of the questions/answers I've seen so far all automatically send the email once generated.

e.g. A particular view is displayed to the user, they can click 'Export to Memo', and a new memo (in their own mailbox) with the body field pre-populated with details from the view. The user can then choose to file the memo in their mailbox, or personalise and forward onto others.

Well, maybe the easiest way to locate mail server and database is to get names from Environment aka notes.ini file properties "MailFile" and "MailServer"

mailserver = sess.GetEnvironmentString("MailServer", True )
mailfile= sess.GetEnvironmentString("MailFile", True ) ' here the mailfile name is with .nsf extension

Hope this function exists in R5.
