I'd like to have a link where people can send an email to multiple addresses for my fantasy baseball league.  How can I make a link where it will send to all addresses?  I tried mailto but it doesn't like that, or maybe I did it wrong.  Any suggestions?

Sure mailto works, I use it like that all the time.
Just put commas between the email addresses like this:
<a href="mailto:mail@mail.com,john@doe.com,jane@doe.com">Mail us</a>

I can't get that to work.  Check out http://www.ionline.net/~jlewis/wwbl/menu.html to see my link.  It only takes the first email address.

The link works right for me; I get all the email addresses.  What browser are you using?  I'm using netscape 4.0

I'm using IE 3.02.  Great, maybe it only works for the new browsers.
