Hi All
Heres the problem.
1 Computer, Windows XP Pro, Office XP

6 Users all with seperate profiles and email signatures.

All using Outlook.

Now they are on a rotating shift pattern and need to send out differing reports at various people at set times. I wish to be able to make a document with mailto links for each report that will include the message and their signature.

Using a href="mailto:[email protected]?subject=Weekly Reports&body=Please find your report attached.">click here /a> The message is displayed but not the signature.

Is there a simple way arround this. As I must be missing someting obvious.

I'm really struggling to understand what you want to do, sorry its probably my fault. Is each user emailing back? In which case depends if they got the box ticked to automatically add a signature, if not then the email is sent without one. I select mine manually depending who I'm sending the email to.

I'm not sure if this is any use?:

<p align="left"><font color="#000000">subject=Weekly Reports&body=Please find your report attached.</font>
<a href="mailto:[email protected]">click here</a></p>

By the way, I find this site is useful for testing HTML code: click here

Using the code <a href="mailto:[email protected]?subject=Weekly Reports&body=Please find your report attached.">click here</a> then the email opens with the fields filled in and in the body the message "Please find your report attached." but no signature.

If I use <a href="mailto:[email protected]?subject=Weekly Reports">click here</a> then the email opens with the signature but with no message. Bieng greedy I want both.

Just a matter of interest, have you put this question to the guys on the WebDesign forum? They might be more up to speed on HTML.

In the mean time, I'll have a play, the trouble is Outlook is at work and I'm at home for a couple of weeks, so I can test the code easily.
