How to "link" a label in a Help -> About form

I've created an app in VB.NET 2003 and want to put a link to my e-mail address in the Help -> About screen.  Basically, I'd like to do something like "mailto:<my.email.address>" and have it open a new message in the user's default mail program with my address already put in (and, preferrably, a default subject and beginning message body).  I see that the System.Web.Mail seems to have the ability to do this, but every example I've found ends with the program automatically sending the e-mail.  I want the user to have a new e-mail open with certain defaults already in place, that they can then add to and send when they're ready.

Hope this makes sense, let me know if you need more info...

Drag a linklabel from the toolbox to the form, type your emailaddress in the text,

then in the linkclickevent of the linklabel to something like this

    Private Sub LinkLabel1_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs) Handles LinkLabel1.LinkClicked
        Process.Start("mailto:bla.bla@Bla.com")
    End Sub
