you need to add a HyperlinkListener to your pane (assuming the email address is a link), and have it use Runtime.exec() to fire up outlook.

Add a HyperlinkListener and Runtime.exec OE.

to start up the mail client try:

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe /C start mailto:xxx@yyy.com");

your listener would look something like:

public class MyHyperlinkListener implements HyperlinkListener
{
   public void hyperlinkUpdate(HyperlinkEvent e)
   {
       URL url = e.getURL();
       if (url.getProtocol().startsWith("mailto"))
       {
          Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe /C start "+url);    
       }
   }
}

Start the program in a separate thread in the listener - it should not be executed in the event handling thread

>> it should not be executed in the event handling thread

Should it matter if we're not using waitFor () ?
