This question shows an interesting possibility, batch files generating e-mail:
I am trying to make a simple script which will launch the default email program, and automatically input the email address, the subject and the message. I already have a script that does the first address and subject but I can't seem to get the message to work. here is what I have so far: start mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Adjustable_Keyboard_Trays This works, but then I try to add the following (which works in HTML): start mailto:email@example.com?subject=Adjustable_Keyboard_Trays&body=myMessageHer e ....and it doesn't work. Can this be done with a batch file? Spanks in advance. bipple
By preceding the ampersand ( & ) with a caret ( ^ )
and the spaces by %%20 short one liners can be sent by NT batch files.
I didn't test this yet, but I think Windows 95/98 won't even need the caret before the ampersand.
Our batch file might look like this (NT):
@ECHO OFF START mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Errorˆ&body=Returncode%%20%errorlevel%%%20was%%20returned%%20by%%20the%%20backup%%20program.
