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.
