Hi,
Is it possible to create an .eml file[or .msg file] programmatically using asp.net c#?

We need to create this email file in our .net application and fire a default mail client in client's machine with this .eml/.msg content.

Any suggestions?

Hi, Thank you for your quick response.

The given link "Creating an Outlook Message File with C#" is referring to use interop for which we need to install outlook in "server" which is not recommended for our server environment. Can you please suggest any other option?

Are you saying that you want your asp.net application to create a message using Outlook at the client's computer?
