On my company's intranet I have a button that sends an HTML email without a problem.I am using System.Net.Mail for this.
Now they are requesting to view the email before it is sent. Ideally I thought it would create the email and then open it up so they can edit it, add CC's etc. However, I'm finding that this may not be possible. Not unless Outlook is installed on the server,
which it is not.
My question is: is it possible, from a website, create an Outlook email (or any email) that the user can see and edit before it is sent out?

you would have to do it one of two ways (that I can think of).
1) get office components on the server and try to instantiate an outlook email object.
2) manually create the message at the server (create it as an rft or msg)
Then, stream the new file to the client and (it should) launch the clients default mail client, and they should be able to do more things with the message then.

I really appreciate you taking the time to help me with this.
Can you give me a little more information about the streaming part of the file? I understand the create an rft or msg part, but how do I send the file to the client's mail client?
Thank you for the help.

you dont specifically send it to their Mail client, you just send it to them. Their system settings will look at the file type and open it with the appropriate application.
Lots of great samples and info here:
