Sending Email quickly

Post by Arandora » Thu Aug 28, 2003 1:16 pm

??? If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, you can quickly send e-mail without leaving the browser. Just press Ctrl + O. When the Open dialog box appears, type

mailto:the recipient's e-mail address

and then press Enter. If you want to send mail to more than one recipient, separate the e-mail addresses with commas. For example,,,

After you press Enter, your default mail client will open and you can enter your message as usual.

This works with Internet Exploer but not with Avant, well not with me anyway. I am using Win 98SE. Is there an alternative in Avant?

It "worked" for me.. but I have no mail client defined in the browser.

It "could" be because of 98.. it works in Win2000 here.
'Minimal collateral damage' and 'entire star system' do /not/ belong in the same sentence.
