I was trying to pass html content to the email body, but looks like it is not doing that.

var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest('mailto:');

            var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();

            variables.subject ="Subject";

            variables.body = '<b>hello</b>';

   = variables;

            request.method = URLRequestMethod.GET;


           request.contentType = "text/html";

            navigateToURL(request, "_self");







current output inthe email:   <b>hello</b>



Expected result : hello



Please let me know if anybody knows the solution



Note: I even tried these but didn't work.
variables.body = encodeURIComponent('<b>hello</b>');

    Does the mailto spec say it is possible?  I didn’t think so.  I think folks send mail from the server instead.

    In AIR you should be able to write a native extension to do just about anything.
