Send An Email Message Without Opening Outlook
You can send an email message without opening up the full Outlook package:
- First, create the following batch file:
Start Outlook.exe /c ipm.note
- Name this file newmsg.bat and save it in the folder in which outlook.exe resides (e.g., C:\program files\microsoft office\office).
- Next, create a shortcut for the batch file on your desktop: right-click the file, select Create Shortcut, then drag the shortcut to your desktop. You can also add this shortcut to your Quick Launch toolbar.
- Now by double-clicking on this shortcut you will access a small part of Outlook only to send out an email message.
