hello me again
was wondering if anyone knows how i can automatically download an image into an email window.

ie when someone clicks on an image on the website it automatically puts the image into the email message window (its for an email christmas card), i think i've explained it OK haven't seen any examples of it tho.

I don't think you've explained it to well. If you wanted someone to write an email to an address you specify, you'd have "mailto:addy@host.com" as the link.

If you wanted an image to display IN an email, just put something like:

<img src="http://absolute.path/to/image" alt="Turn images on!" />

The final interpretation of your question is impossible. If someone clicks on an image, you can't get their mail client to receive the image and put it in the body. If you wrote the email client (for example, an online client) or you wrote a Firefox extension, it might work!

you could use php to send the mail via a form...

take a look at this tutorial: http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorials/130/0.php

take a good look at the html mail section as thats what you need to embed an image into the email.
