O.k., thought I'd give an update.

Got the PC side working. Ended up setting a classpath as an environment
variable. This classpath stuff is as clear as mud. Will have to get more
experience using it.

Someone off-list sent me an example RPG program that invokes notepad.exe.
And this really works like a charm!

Unfortunately, I tried using "mailto:dan2@xxxxxxxxx"; (using my real address)
as a command sent to the data queue, but got:
Command to be Executed = mailto:dan2@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
did not start :java.io.IOException: CreateProcess:
mailto:dan2@xxxxxxxxx error=2

... even though this works from within the Windows Run dialog box.

So... How can I find out how to start an Outlook "Create New Email" window,
plugging in recipient email address, subject, and body text? This is Outlook
2002. Presume that Outlook is already running.
