Superquick email with ActiveWords !

Sometimes you just need to send a email, without any fuss and loading. Traditionally you could got to the Start menu, find the outlook icon, wait and wait again, open new email, find email-address.... A drag!!!

If you use this script, then you just enter your keyword (I use mail, nice and simple) and away it is.

1. Type add in your Action-Pad or monitor bar and select F8 or Enter.

2. Select scripting in the add-wizard and paste this in the action field. :

This will open the default mail program which handles mailto: , usually Outlook.If you have made a signature (text substitution ), it is easy to script it into the other. Like this:

<WAIT FOR WINDOW:TITLE=message><END><ENTER:2><WORD:[your ActiveWord signature]>

If you are particular brave, its possible to send it directly, and even select which account. Give it a try!

Remember, with the Action-Pad you can always test your script if you paste/enter into the text field and enter Ctrl + S (Scripts it out)

Remember that ActiveWords "types out" the scripts. Often a single space in the wrong place can cause the script to "misfire"
