Poco General FAQ - Sending a message body to Poco

Q: Is it possible to send message body text to Poco using command line parameters?

I have gotten it to accept a subject line using the standard "mailto" syntax, but I am writing an application that I would like to be able to send the message as well.

 
A:
Yes you can send the body, the recipients (to, cc and bcc) and the subject too if necessary. There are a couple of ways you can do this:
  • You can send them as command line parameters as part of the "Mailto:' syntax, e.g.:
    "mailto:someone@somewhere.com&subject=xyz&body=This is a body."
    or
  • You can have your application generate a script that you can launch via the "/r" command line parameter (eg: /r "ScriptName").
