Send Mail Problem

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:emailaddress@spam.com?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?
