What would be the difference between using this script and just a standard getURL mailto: action? Do you have any idea of how to prevent IE opening a blank window while it opens up your email program? This happens with IE5.5 and Eudora Pro.

scott... i find if im testing a movie (Ctrl + Enter) or if im making a projector the mailto:action opens a blank window then opens the mail program annoying huh ? ... but when the flash movie is published as a .swf and is opened in a browser, this script works fine.

Trying to use the email button function.. the only problem I am having the subject isn't coming up. Here is the code i am entering in. on(release){ email= "rocky@andern.com"; subject= "a-yo Andern"; getURL ("mailto:rocky@andrea.com",subject="a-yo Andern"); } whats wrong..?

Change the comma to a question-mark (and you don't need the variables - you were defining them and then not using them)... on(release){ getURL ("mailto:rocky@andrea.com?subject=a-yo Andern"); }

you can use the "\n" or "newline". "newline" defined in flash.
