This code is in a button on a form which pulls up the email client and opens up a new mail message. When accessing from a Web Browser, clicking on the button opens up the default mail client (Outlook).
However, the customer would like for that mail client (Outlook) to open up when accessing this DB through the Notes Client. No matter how the OS defaults are set, the Notes client tries to launch the Notes mail file.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Changed Notes' User Preferences to say None for Mail Program.
2. Changed the OS mail default program to Outlook.
3. Checked OS registry to make sure of the following things.
A. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Clients\Mail = "Default" = Microsoft Outlook
B. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command = (path to Outlook)
5. Outlook opens up and creates a new mail message.
Mailto used Notes client only. Not a default mail client.
SPR # JIZO4WHTJW has created as enhancement request
Any Client or browser based Client to open up when accessing this DB through the Notes Client. This should consider the OS defaults.
Similarly, HCAA trying to launch iNotes for mail instead of the default mail client is a real pain. I think that behaviour is an IBM leftover.
