That's odd...
Authored by: jecwobble on Jan 16, '07 09:03:15AM

I have to use Windows and Outlook at work. I have Outlook set to default to RichText for a mail format. I have been using the angle brackets to create hyperlinks to web URL and network files in Outlook for years. I just doublechecked and the <mailto:someone> worked as expected for me. So it seems strange that if Outlook gets and email from Mail.app enclosing hyperlinks like this, that it would botch thems up.

"Microsoft Outlook also ignores "mailto:" links in the form of <mailto:clint@foo.com>"
"I just doublechecked and the <mailto:someone> worked as expected for me."

Maybe it is just an issue on some implementations of Exchange/Outlook, since we have the problem at my institution.

Best wishes,
Clint

There may be a setting to disable this, and it may be set disabled by your organization as a security measure. Just speculating here....
