Open email client with pre-populated email, subject and attachment

I'm trying to combine the Email function and openURL

 

I use the following for invoices, which is 100% fine

let myEmail := userEmail();
let myPdf := printAndSaveRecord(this, "Quotes");
let myName := "Cardia Bioproducts Quote" + ".pdf";
importFile(this, myPdf, myName);
sendEmail({
from: myEmail,
to: Customer.'Account Email',
subject: "Cardia Bioproducts Invoice",
text: "Please find attached the invoice for your order 'Purchase Order #' on Date",
attachments: file(this, myName)
});

 

But I want to achieve the above with the same effects that the below achieves. Not sure how to add the attachment though.

openURL("mailto:" + Contact.Email + "?" + "&subject=" + 'Quote Number')

    I have the same question, mainly bcs all my email send with the fucntion sendEmail are going directly to the spam inbox. Is there any reason for that ?

    The main reason for that would be because the Ninox mail server spoofs as which ever email address you put in the From: field. I would think that a lot of spam would use this technique to make you think that it is from a different/legitimate source. So yes, it could be hit a miss. I personally haven't had any issues with this so far, but people’s Gmail accounts do warn you that the email could be spoofed.
