I would like to create an email message in Java and place it in a users outbox to be sent when the email client connects to a mail server. Here is the code I am now using:
Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd /c start mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Test&body=Hello");
This creates a message window in Outlook and fills in the address and subject but does not send the message. I have to click on the send button to move the message to the Outlook outbox.
Is there a way to create an email message in Java and have a users default email client send it with out the user having to do anything?

I don't know that there are Java libraries that can interact with a user's email client to this degree, especially as it would be different for each email client. Some platform-specific and email-client-specific scripting may do the trick.
