    Hi,

    You can use linkToURL ui element with property "reference" having the value like "mailto: @ domain.com".

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    CReate a link to URL ui element. For the refernce property give it as ; mailto:email id

    You can hard code some value , it will open default outlook new email template with the mail ID mentioned,

    You can also supply this using context attribute. Prefix the mail id with "mailto:" key word.

    Regards,

    It should be noted that just relying on the browser handling for the [url mailto: reference|http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-html40-970708/htmlweb.html] does not guarantee handling by any specific email application. It is completely up to the browser implementation - The HTML 4.0 spec does not specify any handling other than:

    MAILTO URLs have the following syntax:

    mailto:email-address

    User agents may support MAILTO URL extensions that are not yet Internet standards (e.g., appending subject information to a URL with the syntax "?Subject=my%20subject" where any space characters are replaced by "%20").

    Then again - given that WDA supports so few browsers (user agents!), you could probably get around the different support in each them in a reasonably common way.

    To ensure that it is MS Outlook you are launching and potentially pass more data into that email you'll need to make use of the [ACFExecute functionality|http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70ehp1/helpdata/en/47/b91539878a2d67e10000000a42189c/frameset.htm] and then also the [command-line interface of Outlook.|http://www.brighthub.com/office/collaboration/articles/21840.aspx]
