How to bring out an Outlook email message pre-filled in by Mike Gagnon
Posted: 26 Jul 03

This was taken from the FoxPro 2.6 forum and modified slightly to add the "CC" and the body. It is low-level, so it should work in most versions of FoxPro (including 2.6)

Function email
Lparameters cUrlto,cUrlcc
cFile = Sys(2023) + Sys(3) + '.URL'
If File(m.cFile)
    Erase (m.cFile)
nFh = Fcreate(m.cFile)
If m.nFh < 0
    Wait "Can't create a temporary file for the email" Window Nowait
= Fputs(m.nFh,'[InternetShortcut]')
= Fwrite(m.nFh,'URL=mailto:' + cUrlto)
= Fwrite(m.nFh,"?CC= &cUrlcc&Subject= Meet for lunch&Body=Please join me and the gang for lunch tomorrow")
= Fflush(m.nFh)
= Fclose(m.nFh)
Run /N2 Start &cFile
Return .T.
