Microsoft Outlook has been setup in order to send emails from within OVSD.
Unfortunately when we click on the action "email message to this person" another Outlook instance is opened and an error pops in the pane where the inbox/calendar etc appear. Before I get to the error I will add that the new mail message box with the person name does appear and you can send an email as desired.
So I have 2 issues here; first if outlook is already open, I only need the new message box to open, I do not requires another instance of outlook to open and second whether or not outlook is open, when outlook does open (after clicking on the action within ovsd) it has the error message I mentioned earlier; the message implies that the pane is trying to get to a website and cannot.
thank you; that populates the to: field with the email address you provided. Is there a variable to allow for the name in the field you are selecting "to email" from to be pre-populated? for example i am selecting the drop down menu from the caller field therefore when the new message box pops-up i was hoping the caller's email address would be in there. It works if you just have outlook.exe with no switches but then the 2 errors i reported return.
I got it to work... i put the outlook.exe /c ipm.note command in the application section under action and rules and in the smart action itself i put the /m parameter and used the OVSD attribute Primary Email Address; this creates a new email and populates the to: field with the caller...
Now i need the subject populated but can't find the switch for that; any suggestions?
There were some good ideas in here but ultimately they do not work. Actually typing in the variable into the command line under the application worked for the primary email address and nothing else but at this time that will be sufficient.
