    Hello,​

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

       public interface IOpenManager  
       {  
           void openMail();  
       }  
    

    In Android.

       [assembly: Dependency(typeof(OpenImplementation))]  
       namespace App23.Droid  
       {  
           public class OpenImplementation : IOpenManager  
           {  
               public void openMail()  
               {  
                   Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ActionMain);  
                   intent.AddCategory(Intent.CategoryAppEmail);  
                   intent.AddFlags(ActivityFlags.NewTask);  
                   //FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK  
                   Android.App.Application.Context.StartActivity(intent);  
               }  
           }  
       }  
    

    In iOS.

       [assembly: Dependency(typeof(OpenImplementation))]  
       namespace App23.iOS  
       {  
           public class OpenImplementation : IOpenManager  
           {  
               public void openMail()  
               {  
                   NSUrl mailUrl = new NSUrl("message://");  
                   if (UIApplication.SharedApplication.CanOpenUrl(mailUrl))  
                   {  
                       UIApplication.SharedApplication.OpenUrl(mailUrl);  
                   }              
               }  
           }  
       }  
    

    call this dependcy via: DependencyService.Get<IOpenManager>().openMail();

    Best Regards,

    Leon Lu
