Links to EML files

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Dimitris Pantazopoulos, Jul 22, 2004.

  1. Hello
    I need to create a hyperlink to an .eml file so as to view it when the link is followed. The code is:

    Response.Write "<a href='\\server\folder\myeml.eml'>eml link</a>"

    The problem is that the url automatically produced by this link is:
    "mhtml:file://\\server\folder\myeml.eml"
    and the file cannot be found.

    If I manually type "file:///\\server\folder\myeml.eml" everything works fine.

    How can I produce the correct url from my asp code? Any ideas?

  2. Okay
    I found this to be a known bug: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;825803

    The workaround is unacceptable though. Any ideas?
