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()">

Open in new window

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
