    Simple Email Client

    Hi,

    We have just been told that students will need to be able to create an example email for an assessment they will be doing but they can not have internet access.

    They need to be able to enter a to:, cc:, subject and the message text. They then need to printscreen the email but not send it.

    I've had a look at some portable email clients but I dont think it will work too well.

    Does anyone know of any flash swf that can replicate an email client? or can suggest anything different?

    Thanks,

    Michael

    Outlook will do this if you have it, just click no to the wizard on its start then click on new message.

    We've removed outlook 2007 and the basic from the build. So unfortunatly this wont be an option for us.

    Can you not just use Thunderbird?

    If they litteraly just need to screen grab it you can probably make a form in AutoIT & Koda.

    Here is a quick html form that has a To, Cc, Bcc and Message body to fill out. And a button that submits the form to the printer. Haven't the time at the moment to make it look nice but if enough people would find it useful might have a go. Here is the code. Just save as an html file and pop it on the network.

    Code:
    <head>
    
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <form method="post" action="mailto:youremail@email.com">
    
    To...     <input type="text" size="100" maxlength="200" name="To"> <br />
    <p></p>
    Cc...     <input type="text" size="100" maxlength="200" name="Cc"><br />
    <p></p>
    Bcc...    <input type="text" size="100" maxlength="200" name="Bcc"><br />
    <p></p>
    Subject...<input type="text" size="100" maxlength="200" name="Subject"><br />
    <p></p>
    <textarea rows="25" cols="100" wrap="physical" name="comments">
    Enter Comments Here
    </textarea>
    <p></p>
    <INPUT TYPE="button" value="Print" onClick="window.print()">
    </form>
    
    
    </body>

    Fantastic - Do you have the au3 file so I can have a play around to see how you did it? As I don't seem to be able to use enter to go to the next line in the message box.

    I have tried the thunderbird option as suggested above. I have downloaded the portable version and have installed it on a shared drive. It works ok but as soon as another user trys to open it, it says that another user is already using it.

    Does anyone know how I can get round this?

    Try making the share read only, although this will probably just kill it dead.
