Hi,
Currently I have a Windows batch file which performs a number of file related tasks. However, the final thing I want it to do is open a new email with Outlook Express* and automatically attach a file, leaving the user to complete the rest of the email and send it.

At the moment, I'm basically running mailto: from the batch file, however, there doesn't seem to be a way to provide a file for it to automatically attach.

If anyone has any idea of how to do this, or any pointers in the right direction, this would be much appreciated. VBscripts, C++/VB, anything as long as I can call it from a batch file and doesn't require user interaction.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Sorry for the delay in replying.

Thanks for your reply. I'll have a look once I finally get Visual Studio installed, but I don't see why it shouldn't work.
