You need to set up your netscape mail settings.   Your HTML is fine, it's just you.  Everyone else with netscape can use it.  If you want to set up your mail settings, go tell Netscape either your default e-mail client or set up it's e-mail client.

Don't have netscape sorry I can't be of more help.

All you need to do is to set up your email information within Netscape.  Use Edit->Preferences->Mail & Newsgroup->Identity  to set up your name and address.  You must also have your mail server set up.  Edit->Preferences->Mail & Newgroup->Mail Server is where you can do that.

The specific message that you are seeing is complaining about not having your Identity set up.  However, when it gets a bit further and tries to find an SMTP server to actually send the mail, you'll need to have the server information entered.

As others have pointed out, this is a problem only with your client.  The syntax is correct and anyone with a properly configured client will be able to send mail to that address.

That's more or less a step by step guide of what I mean.  As I said, I don't have netscape so I couldn't give you that.

By the way, If you don't want to use mail with netscape, just ignore the problem.  I don't like using several different clients to access my e-mail so I reccommend you don't either.

Actually, DannoNZ, that doesn't sound to me like what's happening.  It sounds like anilkumarz is simply using a mailto: link in a page.  While this is, technically, using the mail client, as long as you don't set up the POP/IMAP services and attempt to download mail, all you're doing is sending a piece of mail via the SMTP service.  That's pretty convenient for simply clicking a link.  I suppose that you could view this as having 3 parts:  one, set up identity to get rid of the specific message.  That leads to part 2 - set up SMTP service information so that you can actually send mail.  Then, part 3, which is highly optional - set up POP or IMAP service to receive mail.  I see part 3 as divorced from this particular question and unless, as you say, you want to use Netscape Communicator as your mail client, I wouldn't do nor suggest in response to this question.

I was unsure if in netscape you could set up outgoing mail seperately.  Sorry.
