Absolute path to file attached to new e-mail Tuesday, December 13, 2016 7:00 PM (permalink)
Dear all,
need to have a script to have the absolute path to any file attached to a new e-mail (via SendTo menu). Is that possible?
As I can't write any scripts at all, I need your help. Tried to look for code snippets, but all I found did not work out or was created for Outlook only.
Perhaps, there's a method just to create a new e-mail via mailto:
- so a new e-mail would be generated with "\\server\absolute\filepath\file.xlsx" in the body.
Furthermore, the file should be linked (not only text). This is needed, that my colleagues don't edit local copies of files, which are located already on a network storage, which is accessible for all guys.
Win10, Lotus Notes 9
Thank you so much for your help

    I don't think adding attachments via mailto: URLs is supported.

    What you can do is send mail via a script:
    schema = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"
    Set msg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    msg.Subject  = "Test"
    msg.From     = "sender@example.com"
    msg.To       = "recipient@example.org"
    msg.TextBody = "This is some sample message text."
    msg.AddAttachment "C:\path\to\your.file"
    With msg.Configuration.Fields
      .Item(schema & "sendusing")      = 2
      .Item(schema & "smtpserver")     = "smtp.intern.example.com"
      .Item(schema & "smtpserverport") = 25
    End With
    Depending on the configuration of the SMTP server you may need to add credentials or change the port.
