Re: How to contact list members off list?

Hi Brian,

No, I am using Thunderbird and it is the latest version.

Like I said, it appears that it does nothing at all.  I can't find any mailto: tags or anything like that.  It also isn't bringing up another new email screen.  Very strange.

           Are you, by chance, using webmail?   Mailto: links won't necessarily work smoothly with some webmail.  If you bring up the context menu and copy that link, it is a mailto: link.

           It will have the word mailto: immediately followed by the sender's e-mail address, followed by a question mark, followed by what will be put in the message subject automatically.  You can snag the actual e-mail address that way if you're using webmail that does not respond to a mailto: link.

           I haven't encountered an actual e-mail client like Thunderbird, WLM, Outlook, etc., in a very long time that doesn't respond to a mailto: link by opening a compose window with the To: address and Subject: prepopulated based on what the link has in it.
