    This is assuming that you use outlook

    outlook /c ipm.note /recycle

    If you should use Outlook Express (maybe similar in other programs) open OE, click File - New - E-mail message. In the window that comes up click on File - save as and save this empty message to any place you like. Then as the last step locate this file, rightclick - send to - desktop. You now have the shortcut you want on your desktop.

    this is one of my favorite tweaks...it's in the encyclopedia;

    create a shortcut with the following;


    mailto:

    and the persons email address

    click on that shortcut, and voiala

    instant email. pre addressed

    you can drag this to the quicklaunch too

    very cool

    for instance, if you wanted to email me, it would look like this;

    mailto:dealer@fujism.com

    you don't need the recycle bit.

    RUN: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OUTLOOK.EXE" /c ipm.note

    Other commands are..

    /c ipm.activity (create a new Journal entry)
    /c ipm.appointment (create an appointment)
    /c ipm.contact (create a new contact)
    /c ipm.note (create a new email message)
    /c ipm.task (create a new task)
