email link opens blank explorer window
on Aug 30, 2006 at 7:30:39 pm

I have a flash element being used as part of a website, within the flash element there is an email link (mailto:email@email.com) that opens up an outlook email. it works fine when i'm just testing straight from the swf, but once the swf is being used from the actual website clicking the email link also opens up an explorer window. does anyone know why, and how to prevent this?

surprisingly the issue is only in explorer, not firefox.

what opens, when you click the link, depend on the configuration of the broswer. For example in IE the default email client configured, is Outlook Express. You can check it by going to Tools menu and choose Internet Options and then click the Programs tab. Now look what program is configured for the E-mail drop down menu.

Tools->Internet Options->Programs->E-mail
