Use the revMailUnicode command to create an email message from within a stack.


The address is a string consisting of one or more email addresses, separated by commas. These addresses will appear in the To: header of the email message

The ccAddress is a string consisting of one or more email addresses separated by commas. These addresses will appear in the CC: header of the email message.

The mailSubject is a unicode string consisting of a single line. This will appear in the Subject: header of the email message.

The messageBody is a unicode string. This text will appear in the body of the email message.


When Revolution executes the revMailUnicode command, the user's email program is opened (if necessary) and a new email message with the specified parameters is created. The user can change any of the settings before sending the message, and the message is not sent automatically: the user must explicitly send it (for example by clicking the "Send" button in the email program).

On Mac OS X systems, the email message is opened in the application the user has set for the "mailto:" protocol in the system preferences.

For some older email programs, it may not be possible to specify a ccAddress, mailSubject or messageBody. Generally the revMailUnicode command will still work with such programs, but only the To: header will be set.

Note: When included in a standalone application, the Common library is implemented as a hidden group and made available when the group receives its first openBackground message. During the first part of the application's startup process, before this message is sent, the revMailUnicode command is not yet available. This may affect attempts to use this command in startup, preOpenStack, openStack, or preOpenCardhandlers in the main stack. Once the application has finished starting up, the library is available and the revMailUnicode command can be used in any handler.
