    Does anyone know how to programmatically fire up the email app with an image in the email? Essentially I'd like to do the same as the 'Email Photo' option from the Photos app.

    Is such a thing even possible?

    Thanks

    3.0 provides in-app email. In 2.x you do not have direct access to the Mail.app.

    You can send emails using the mailto: schema (there's an Apple doc that tells you about it somewhere on the dev site), which allows full HTML, but it's quite difficult to use and I would advise waiting for 3.0 if you can. You cannot currently send email attachments.

    OK, thanks. I'll leave it out for now, and add it to a later version once 3.0 is out.
