    Using mailto: and inserting ? into body

    Matt_Blubaugh Level 1
      Is anyone familiar with a way to insert a question mark into the body of an email via a getURL("mailto:?subject&body=") call?

      I ask this because I am trying to insert a specific URL

      i.e. http://sostv.com/fwd/vintage.swf?vid=vintage_01

      and the email client disregards the question mark and truncates the URL to everything preceding it.

      I've tried replacing the question mark in my &body: call to be the ascii equivalent of ? but that doesn't work either.

      Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?


      Here is a sample of the code I'm using:

      emailWeb01.onRelease = function(){
      //getURL("mailto:" + "?subject=SOS Vintage Work" + "&body=http://sostv.com/fwd/vintage.swf?vid=vintage_01");

      getURL("mailto:" + "?subject=SOS Vintage Work" + "&body=" + web01.web01text.text);
      }


      The line that I commented out is the hardcoded value I am retrieving from my dynamic text box in the line below.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
