I am using the following code to send an email message, which works in development.
navigateToURL(new URLRequest("mailTo:"+confirmTi.text+"?subject=Notes to self from HFHI Values in Action &body="+values_t.text+""), "_blank");
It still works when loaded and launched from the swf embedded in a swf, but it also first tries to navigate to a new url by openign a new window/tab in IE7. Is there something better than the mailTo: tag to use?
Also, I tried removing the targwt parameter, it does nto work without it being identified....
you can user server-side code if you don't want to rely on the user having a default email program. and you can use "_self" instead of "_blank" if you want to use the user's default email program but don't want to open another window.
