(Direct: http://signa5.com/downloads/_OpenDefaultMail.au3)

I needed it for a script never that eventuated into anything.

EDIT: Updated 10 November 2008. Now hosted by my site, and using suggestions from MsCreator.

Cheers,

Usefull.

But I discovered in my registry that for Opera is missing shell\open\command key

and there is only Protocols\MailTo\shell\open\command with value "C:\PROGRAM FILES\OPERA\OPERA.EXE" "%1"

So due to "%1" it's not possible to use Run()

Ideas:

Also you should make SetError() in some cases (after RegRead):

If @error Then 
    SetError(1)
    Return
EndIf

And maybe make FileExists() test before Run(), but this is maybe unnecessary because in these registry keys should be always correct paths (to existing EXE's).

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

You should use before Run():

Opt("RunErrorsFatal",0)

to avoid hard crash if file not exists. Then your test for @error after Run() will work.

@Bert

In your UDF there is a potential problem - when you return, the Opt() is not restored to initial value :P

And for the other clients, such as Opera Mail, this function should cover the most possible pathes:

Func _LaunchDefaultMailClient()
    Local $Old_Opt_EES = Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", 1)
    Local $Old_Opt_REF = Opt("RunErrorsFatal", 0)
    Local $iRetError = 0, $iRetValue = 0
    Local $ReadDefMailClient, $ReadCommand
    
    $ReadDefMailClient = RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail", "")
    If @error Or $ReadDefMailClient = "" Then $iRetError = 1
    
    If $iRetError = 0 Then
        $ReadCommand = RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\" & $ReadDefMailClient & "\shell\open\command", "")
        If @error Or $ReadCommand = "" Then $iRetError = 2
    EndIf
    
    If $iRetError = 0 Then
        If StringRegExp($ReadCommand, '"(.*)"') Then _
            $ReadCommand = StringMid($ReadCommand, 2, StringInStr($ReadCommand, '"', 0, 2)-2)
        If StringInStr($ReadCommand, '/') Then _
            $ReadCommand = StringLeft($ReadCommand, StringInStr($ReadCommand, '/', 0, -1))
    EndIf
    
    If $iRetError = 0 Then
        $ReadCommand = StringStripWS($ReadCommand, 3)
        If Not FileExists($ReadCommand) Then $iRetError = 3
    EndIf
    
    If $iRetError = 0 Then
        Local $iRetValue = Run($ReadCommand)
        If @error Then $iRetError = 4
    EndIf
    
    Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", $Old_Opt_EES)
    Opt("RunErrorsFatal", $Old_Opt_REF)
    
    Return SetError($iRetError, 0, $iRetValue)
EndFunc

Things do change, squirrely guy who says this in his sig: "Revolt NOW!" - no such thing as aliens

ShellExecute("mailto:me@mydomain.com"); launches client with address
ShellExecute("mailto:"); launches client WITHOUT address

Bit of an old bump, but thanks? I guess...

Pardone me, monsieur - I presume by this that you mean that like I went searching through old threads to dig up this one ?

In your defense, we have this: I think that the function "ShellExecute" became available to us not very long ago.

And we have this as against me: I was not the first to use the function on a HREF attribute.
