Windows 98 and DOS

Command-line E-mail program?

SUMMARY: Access your favorite e-mail program using the Windows 98 DOS command line.


Win98, unlike UN*X, does not have a command-line E-mail utility - or does it? If you have a standard E-mail program that supports the "mailto:" feature, you may be able to improvise.

Click the "Start" button, choose "Run," and key in "mailto:EMAILADDRESS", substituting EMAILADDRESS with the E-mail address to which you want to send mail.

From the DOS command prompt, key in "start mailto:EMAILADDRESS", substituting EMAILADDRESS with the E-mail address to which you want to send mail.

For some E-mail programs, you can attach to the end of EMAILADDRESS "?subject=SUBJECT", substituting SUBJECT with the subject of your E-mail message.
