I give u a brief peace of code
First u must include
//Initialize an SMTP client
SmtpClient objSmtpClient = new SmtpClient();
MailMessage objMail = new MailMessage();
// Precise the mail adress sender and reciever
MailAdress oSenderAdress = new MailAdress("email@example.com");
MailAdress oRecieverAdress = new MailAdress("firstname.lastname@example.org");
//Parameter the objMail
objMail.From = oSenderAdress;
objMail.To = oRecieverAdress;
//To send the email u can use the method
I have actually seen what 1qaz2wsx7 is talking about. It's actually pretty cool. I first saw it at work when a end user needed some help. She was using a Access DB that on one of the forms would actually open up Lotus Notes and fill in the Recipient, Subject and Body.
On a windows machines it uses the default email program that I think can be set int Internet Options -> Programs-> Email setting.
the when Windows sees the mailto protocol it opens the associated program. The program will open a new message page only (Well that's what Windows Mail and Outlook did on my Vista system). You can change the mailto arguments. See: http://www.ianr.unl.edu/internet/mailto.html
