I have a Query that is returning some of my clients information to include email address.  all values are returned correctly but when you click onthe email address (that is formated as such: <A href=mailto:"#Email#">#Email#</A>) the email client opens but nothing is in the TO: area?!

What am I doing wrong?

If the client is opening and there is nothing in the TO: field I would suggest the following:

<A href="mailto:#Email#">#Email#</A>

Move the opening quotes from after the mailto: to before it.

You might also want to add a subject line:

<A href="mailto:#Email#?Subject=Mail from web page">#Email#</A>
