Hello everyone,

I like to accomplish the following. I put my name on the dialog in my application. Now I want when someone click with the mouse on my name, that the standard email client opens (Thunderbird, OUtlook...).

I know the solution is here somewhere on the forum, but when I search I got so many results it is almost impossible to find the correct thread.

Can you point me to that thread or tell me how I can accomplish this?

Thank you very much for your time spend on my request.

Wish you a very nice day and all the best.

The form of the url should be:

mailto:someone@something.com


If you want to include a subject or body, then

mailto:someone@something.com?subject=some%20subject&body=This%20is%20the%20body


You'd EncodeURLComponent for each parameter.
