Easier way to send email?

Hi, I want a to have "Send Feedback" option in my app.


The sample app for email (named message) is very complicated and requires permission to read and delete email which can scare the users.


Is there an easy way which doesn't require C++ code? I only need to add my email address to the To: bar.

Message composer can be used, it doesn't require permissions. Fields can be prepopulated using an URL:



In QML it should look like this:

InvokeActionItem {
    title: qsTr("Email")
    imageSource: "asset:///images/ic_email.png"
    ActionBar.placement: ActionBarPlacement.OnBar
    query {
        invokeTargetId: "sys.pim.uib.email.hybridcomposer"
        invokeActionId: "bb.action.SENDEMAIL"
        uri: "mailto:test@gmail.com?subject=Support"
