I know that you can open up an e-mail with a link on a web-page, even complete the subject bar, address bar, cc, bcc and insert text in the body (see example below)

<a href="


mailto: , ,
cc=
, &
bcc=
, &
subject= Demonstration of a subject&

body= Here is some text that appears in the body of a message


">Generate</a> information message for all teams

I'd like to post a message in a MS Outlook public folder, using a specific title (just like you would do with an e-mail message).

I have already done something similar by creating a link on a web-page that MS Outlook uses instead of it's Outlook Today page; code below: -

<a href="" class=itemNormal
onclick="var theApp = window.external.OutlookApplication;
var theOLNS = theApp.GetNameSpace('MAPI');
var LogItem = theOLNS.Folders('Public Folders');
LogItem = LogItem.Folders('All Public Folders');
LogItem = LogItem.Folders('My Files');
LogItem = LogItem.Folders('Media');
LogItem = LogItem.Folders('Log');
var Log = LogItem.Items.Add('IPM.Post');
Log.Subject = 'Media General Log: ';
Log.Display();
window.event.returnValue=false;">Create new log entry</a>

I would, however, like to be able to use a link from a normal web-page to post this message instead of doing it inside Outlook by changing the Outlook Today page. When I try this code in a web-page it doesn't work; instead it opens a random folder on my hard-drive.

Can anyone help me with this problem
