Mailto in mail body RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an requirement in vb.net like, Body of Outlook mail item should contain a link. On clicking that link, another mail item should open with To list and CC list. I am using below code,

     string Body = "";
     Body += "Please, click the below link to view the details. %0D%0D"
     Body += "<a href=mailto:" + cc + "?Subject=" + Subject + "> Click here to Approve </a>"
     sMsg = User.Redirect("mailto:" + cc + "?Subject=" + Subject + "&body=" + Body)
     ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me.Page, Me.GetType(), "showalert", sMsg, True)

    But I am not getting the link properly in Outlook. It is displaying as below,

    Please, click the below link to view the details. 
    <a href=mailto:xxx@domain.com?Subject=DCW Trucking Ltd.> Click here to Approve </a> 

    I need to have only 'Click here to approve as link'.

    I should not use Outlook dll. Please help asap.

  • You need to set the HtmlBody instead of Body.
