I am launching a default email client using mailto in C#.NET. I have problems in displaying email body text that includes carriage returns. I tried using "vbCrlf" but it did not work. Kindly let me know how to include carriage returns in the email Body. - K.R.R.

You have to compose the mailto: link with escaped characters, as it will be used as a link in the browser. The escaped string for a new line is %0a For example:

mailto:?subject=Daniel Cazzulino answers! &body=You can insert %0a line %0a breaks %0a%0a even more than one.
