Short-Cut for Repetitive E-Mails

By ljackson.desoto ·
In the TechRepublic newsletter in Oct 2002, it discussed creating a short-cut for repetitive e-mails in WIN98. It says to r/c the desktop, create shortcut, but then it says in the target box (where it is actually the command line) type the recipient's e-mail address then name the shortcut. When I put the recipient's address in the cmd line, I get an error saying the file cannot be found which makes sense. Does anyone know how to create the type of e-mail they are talking about. The newsletter was Win95/98 Tips at TechRepublic.com dated October 30, 2002. Thanks.

Short-Cut for Repetitive E-Mails

Type the following, substituting as appropriate:

mailto:Paul@FirstPeter.com

The piece that seems to be missing from above is the "mailto:", which tells the computer to create a mail message to the recipient following the colon.
