Is there a way to open an outlook window from webdynpro apart from using <Mailto:> URLs.
The Mailto URLs doesn't hold good for our requirement as it has URL Length limitation (2083 characters).
OLE seems to be not working with Webdynpro. It requires SAP GUI.
So please let me know if there is any other way. It is an urgent requirement and any help in this regard is highly helpful.
Why do you have problems with the 2083 character limitation of URL names?
The following URL has a length of 278 characters:
If you want to send long mails with subject and body and so on an alternative may be for you not directly to start outlook, but giving the user a form where he can edit a long email and if he/she presses the send button, this email goes through the SAP WebAS ABAP to the Mail Server of the company. The so-called SMTP-Plug-In in SAP WebAS ABAP enables you to send (and receive) mails from an SAP ABAP system to the company's email server and vice versa.
May this be a solution for your problem?
