Use the <a href="mailto:....."></a> format. If the user is bridged, it will open up the email application, if they are not, it will prompt them to bridge to their BlackBerry Smartphone.

Good luck!

Has this been disabled in OS2?

Actually I am having issues with this now as well.

If you try typing the mailto: link into the browser it works, however, I cannot launch the messages app from the mailto: link from within my app.

Really annoying issue on WebWorks for Playbook.

The best solution I have found is this.

 

There are limitations but it will work fine if the email content isn't too large.

Re: How to send Email in Playbook using web works?

Hi

I need to send an attachment via e-mail client programatically in playbook webworks

I had implemented it in BlackBerry Curve using Java Extension.

But Jave Extension is not getting recognized in PlayBook webworks

 

Also I went through this post,


But there is no solution to add mail attachment

Also is it possible to use AIR extension for the mail attachment in PlayBook webworks

Sorry, neither the Java Extension or the native one for iOS will work on the PlayBook. There isn't currently an option besides building a new extension for PlayBook. However, when BlackBerry 10 is released for PlayBook, this will be possible.
