Issue: Open outlook mail from Apex




i am using the Email Services to create my application. Now i have a question, is possible to open an outlook email from apex?

I would to click on a button and open a mail in outlook.



Thanks to all,






This is not possible. The outlook is information is saved in Local system however the salesforce information is on cloud. How could you relate the link ? 


This is the question : you know if exist a protocol to open the outlook mail?

And if this protocol exist, is possible to use with apex?


Apex code runs on cloud server.

Outlook runs on your own PC.


It is possible Apex could tunnel out to your PC *if* your firewall permits it.


More likely you could put stuff in the original VF to locally invoke the Outlook program (simplistically, like mailto: )


Otherwise "no"
