Hello

I'd like to open using JS an outlook send mail window having a file from the server (full url, that should work, right ?) attached. Is this possible ? If so, please tell me how.

Thanks

If you mean using mailto:, it is not possible to include attachments.

All advice is supplied packaged by intellectual weight, and not by volume. Contents may settle slightly in transit.

Not mailto, I knew that's not doable. Activex, mapi or something. I need it to work in IE only.

hi Philip,
do you know of any alternative to send email with attachment (any third-party tool?)?

JavaScript is a client-side language. It is not concerned with (indeed, cannot) send e-mail, with or without an attachment. You'll need something server-side for that.

JavaScript can merely invoke the server-side script to send the e-mail, by requesting it, say, over AJAX, but it is not JavaScript which sends the e-mail.
