I would like to allow a user to send a message with an attachment using the
default email program (Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, etc.).  I don't
want the message to be sent automatically or to provide the email adress.  I
simply want to have a default message with an attachment created.  Then
email program is opened, leaving to the user the opportunity to choose the
recipient and modify the text if he want or delete the message.

Which component should I use?  Any sample code for achieving this?
