Article ID: 169076

Article Last Modified on 1/19/2007



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Outlook 97 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q169076

SYMPTOMS

If you click a mailto Universal Resource Locator (URL) in the body of an e- mail message in Microsoft Outlook 97, a new, untitled e-mail message starts. The new message is automatically addressed to the recipient indicated in the mailto, but none of the other fields in the message header are completed.

RESOLUTION

Outlook supports the basic mailto function having the following format:

someone@microsoft.com


Outlook does not support other formats, including:

mailto: someone@microsoft.com?subject=Subject of Message


mailto: someone@microsoft.com?subject=Subject of Message&cc=others@ microsoft.com


mailto: someone@microsoft.com;someone1@microsoft.com?subject=Subject of Message


STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Outlook 97 for Windows. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Outlook 97 version 8.02 for Windows.
