Creating standard Send Email functionality using Visualforce.



I created a VF page that provides the standard functionality of the "Send Email" in Salesforce using Registered service. The page basically allows to send email to the users through a registered service. The VF page will look like standard "Send Email" page of SF. I created the custom button "Select Template" and when user clicks on select template button standard Salesforce pop up window also opens up, listing various templates to select.Now as the pop-up which opens up is in * domain and our Visualforce page is in * domain, so the browser security settings doesn’t allow the pop-up window to communicate the template selected action back to parent window (i.e., our vf page). Browser prevents cross server interactions.


Please advice.



If you are trying to leverage the standard applications functionality by "hacking" into the URL, you are out of luck. This is probably one of the reasons that visual force pages are served froma different domain. 


You will have to build the "Select a template" functionality yourself. I would try to work with the OOTB functionality unless there's a specific reason you cannot.
