I have no idea, but am curious why.

I would suggest though that you include why, or what other things you need it to do at the same time. I mean like, do you want it to pre-fill the receiver address or something? So like a feedback button?

Does it have to be the actual IOS e-mail program? Did you know that e-mails can be sent without a program or even a sender e-mail account used? For example, think about websites that have you fill out a form to contact them. They send the e-mail via code running off the website. Something like that sounds easier to do in a game than to open an external program.

Does it need to pre-fill any information? Start a new e-mail? Or just open it?

If it just opens it... phones have a button for that right? I think to be able to get the best help you need to say why you need to do it or at least other related requirements (like the above).

Hi,

 it's a url, so you would use the custom action ApplicationOpenUrl and you would use mailto:name@email.com as the url to open and the OS will understand that as a command to open the default mail client.

 Bye,

 Jean
