    Can someone help me with dumb AOL issue, please?

    Hi,

    Is there anyone who is familiar with AOL?

    Here is my problem.

    I typed in following link to web page.

    <a href="mailto:account@domain.com?subject=more-info">click
    here</a>

    When someone who has AOL click the link, this is what happens.

    Email program opens with "account@domain.com" in To: field.
    But, nothing in subject line.

    How do you make AOL email program put "more-info" into it's
    subject line when the link is clicked?

    Please someone help me with this

    you can't with AOL. Unfortunately it's one of the many "less-than-desirable" qualities of AOL.

    Sorry.

    Hummm

    I tried everything and nothing worked

    I use email filter using subject line and all emails
    from AOL has nothing on subject line

    I wish there is some way to do it.

    Well, thanks for letting me know.
    At least I know the answer now.

    It can not be done, so, leave it alone

    Do you have access to multiple domain alias? If so you could set up a different email for each filter? Then you could filter by the email address assuming your email program allows it.

    I switched to the above method when I realized 2/10 people who emailed me changed the subject line when I forced it on them.

    Just an idea,

    Dan,

    I appreciate your input

    I guess I could do that if that's only way.

    Thanks
