The easiest way would probably be to use 'ShellExecute()' (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb762153(VS.85).aspx), e.g.


#include <tchar.h>
#include <shellapi.h>
 
void SendErrorMail()
{
  LPCTSTR pszCmd = _T("mailto:joeuser@foo.com&subject=Error&body=An error has occured.");
 
  ShellExecute(NULL,_T("open"),pszCmd,NULL,NULL,SW_SHOW);
}

Open in new window

Thank you for you reply.
I was thinking about this solution. So if you do that it will open the message but not send it ? The user will have the possibility to send it or not.

Yes, that is exactly what should happen, regardless of any mail client your user is using as the default one.
