Specify an email address in file>attach to email command

I have created a form in Adobe Acrobat Professional 8.  In the form I have created a button that executes the "menu item" file>attach to email.  How do I specify an email address and subject line for the email that is openned?
If I use the open weblink to "mailto:me@mymail.com" then how do I get it to attach the form with data to the email.  
I can't seem to find a way to do both - I can either get the file attached properly w/o an email address filled in OR I can get the email address filled in w/o the file attached.  HELP!

Here is what I would do, open the form in LiveCycle, click View, XML Source... find your email button in the code and within the xml for that object there is this code:

            <event activity="click">
               <submit format="xml" textEncoding="UTF-8" target="mailto:mail@mail.com"/>
            </event>

change whatever is in target to the email address you want.

Is there a way to attach the file to a mailto:me@mymail.com email once it has opened the email.  Right now when I do the mailto: statement first and then do the file>attach to email in the ACTIONS, Acrobat is opening two emails - one to my address and one with the file attached.  Any ideas.....?

I have done some research on this, and it doesn't look like it's possible to attach a pdf to an email using the mailto... command...
