Person Object - Send E-mail

Good morning,


I'm using the Person object to represent clients in the system.


Users are being uploaded as an account object via the API in .net. The e-mail field is being set on the .net side. When I log in to salesforce, view one of these created accounts and select "Send E-mail", the next page displays but doesn't have any of the fields pre-populated.


This defeats the objective of selecting the 'Send E-mail' within an account objects page, as I then have to manually search for the user in the e-mail field.


Am I missing out on something obvious or is this functionality simply not available? If it is available, where does the page get the e-mail address to populate the text boxes from?


Thank you for your time,






Ok, so you are on a "Person Account" record, and then you go to the related list for activities and click "Send E-mail" the next page opens, and the to section is blank?


What field is the e-mail being saved to on the record?
