Good afternoon guys, you guys have been of immense help to my "coding" life. I have a little challenge and this is the challenge:i want to send the content in a textBox to Email and once it opens, it should open the compose box with the Email as the Subject i:e I have a textBox on my form with a button named Email, so once you insert a email into the textBox and you click the Email Button, it should automatically open the Windows Live Mail if it is installed on the Computer system with the Email entered into the textBox appearing in the "To:" section of the Compose Mail section of the Windows Live Mail. Thanks in anticipation of your favourable reply

See this blog entry I wrote on how to do this:

Tip – Sending multi-line email using the mailto: protocol[^]

Code snippet from the blog:

string command = " Subject&body=Ln 1%0D%0ALn 2";

In your case you have to transfer the to: address and mail body from the text boxes to a string. Use String.Format to do that.
