    Emailing from road runner

    Hi all,

    I would like to have an email program in my car pc. I would like to use RR as a frondend. And push a button to launch an email application. Is it possible to have something like this? I now try this. But when RR opens a email application. And I try to write a new email. Because it focus on the first screen. The new screen is behind the original. When typing a new message It uses a new screen.
    So wich application is RR friendly and alows emailing. Second Can I use the osk.skin to write words? Or is there an other way to type in the words for an email??

    Best regards,

    Osa2

    I have embedded Outlook 2000 as an external app using the window name "!rctrl_renwnd32" (no quotes) and it's working pretty well.

    I'm able to install both outlook and thunderbird. But I find it hard to use it without Keyboard. Is there a friendly touschcreen version? of any email program?

    I use the CNS vkey on screen keyboard. Whenever a data entry box is present a little icon appears. When you click the icon the keyboard comes up. When you enter the data and hit okay the keyboard then disappears. It will even allow you to zoom so you can see what you're typing in the box. I use it a lot not only in RR, but for all my applications on the carputer. Only drawback is that it's not skinnable. It's gotten hard to find it online, so if you're interested let me know and I'll email you the zip file (4.5 meg).

    i have sending emails integrated into RR, without embedding anything in my skin (unreleased ver). When i post it you can pick it apart. As of now no receiving email is supported though.

    @kbreeden. Thanks for the info. I found a website wich had the file. I installed it but it doesn't integrade that well. MAybe I did something wrong. It doesn't come up automaticcaly when a box is on the screen where I can write something down.

    You need to first touch the screen where you want to type info. A little blue box will then appear. If you click the box the keyboard will come up. As far as I know, qwerty is all it offers.
