Hello the code below was made for a button to open a new outlook message prior to Outlook 12 ( 2007 ). Is there a way to modify this to make work with 2007?

Thanks advance.
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
 
function genNewEmail()
 
{
 
  try
 
  {
 
    o = new ActiveXObject("Outlook.Application");
 
    if(o)
 
    {
 
      mailFolder = o.getNameSpace("MAPI").getDefaultFolder(6);
 
 
 
      //You could also use custom forms like IPM.Note.CustomForm
 
      mailItem = mailFolder.Items.add("IPM.Note");
 
      mailItem.Display(0)
 
    }
 
  }
 
  catch(e)
 
  {
 
    window.status = e.Message;
 
  }
 
}
 
</script>
 
 
 
<input type="button" value="New Message" NAME="cmdNewMessage" OnClick="genNewEmail()">

Well, if Outlook is your default email client, you could simply go with this:


<script type="text/javascript">
top.location.href="mailto:user@domain.tld";
</script>

Open in new window
