How do I launch default e-mail client with a attachment already inserted?

How do I launch default e-mail client with a attachment already inserted? I do not want to use SMTP for sending, as I want the users to click on Send themselves. I tried to use mailto:, but it does not support attachments. Thank you.
For attachments in e-mail messages, you're going to have to do InterOp calls to the MAPI functions. It's an old API, but it will work.
