I just sent Megan an additional email because I think that my previous email
may cause confusion.
I misspoke about Outlook. Technically, what I meant was that if a user
doesn't have a mail client installed on their computer then attempting to
click on mail to: links may or may not work.
Some of you may go to Outlook.com to use your email address. This doesn't
mean that you have actually installed Outlook. For example, I use a
Hotmail.com email address and before I installed Outlook I used outlook.com
to access my email.
If any of you out there would like more information about mail clients visit
One important thing that was mentioned in the thread was the following
quote:" As a web developer you don't have any control over the software that
a user chooses to open their email, since it's handled by that user's web
browser settings, or the OS. If a user has no email program installed on
their machine and no operation defined for "mailto" links in their browser,
nothing would happen."
Hope this clears up any confusion. :)

WOS webmaster says I need Outlook to be able to use the email links, but I
do have Outlook.
I have a feeling I'm going to be screwed for this registration; if I sound
pessimistic, it's because it has never worked for me even though I'm using a
computer that seems to work for everything else I do.
