    mailto - limit number of email address?

    Is there a limit to the number of email addresses that can be used in a mailto tag? Or the total string length in a mailto tag?

    I am having problems with a mailto tag!

    cheers

    aghhhhhh!!!!

    I just want to loop through a recordset and get a load of email address which populate an outlook email! This is for an internal CMS (so we control the mail client used) and needs to be an Outlook email so users have the flexibility to add more emails from their address book and to attach files without the need to upload them to the server.

    How can I do this if the mailto is limited?!

    cheers

    Why not create some sort of distribution list with all of the recordset's addresses as members? Then you'd just have a link like this:
    HTML Code:
    <a href="mailto:yourdistributionlist@example.com">send to distribution list</a>
