Script to open an e-mail program?
can I send mail through outlook
too much information

 6:31 pm on Feb 4, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have a test server that I am using and I would like to have my script send e-mails using my outlook program so that I will have a record of the sent e-mail. (It is an automated send in the process, not spam)

Even if the script was just able to open a new email and populate it for me to come along and hit the 'send' button later it would be ok.

Is there a way to do this?

No, let me clarify. This needs to be ASP, not HTML.

I am currently using Persits to send mail from my script. I have access to the server, can I get my ASP script to open a new message in Outlook or another e-mail program where it will populate (and possibly send) the message?

I want to have a record of sent messages.

If it's ASP, CDONTS allows you to cc or bcc recipients. So instead of using outlook to send, have the ASP send the email but bcc: yourself. Now you receive a copy of all outgoing messages in your Outlook inbox. From there, you can drag them to another folder for archive purposes. I'm hoping your asp component (persits?) supports this also.
