I have created a mailer with a mail to link in it. It defines the subject and content and everything. It works great in outlook, but my customer says he tried to use it on a web based email account and it errored.

<a
href="mailto:bob@xxx.com?Subject=Thanks%20for%20your%20xxx.com%20Interest&Body=Please send more information.</a>

I've deleted most of the content of the mail, but do these work on web based mails?

thanks.

when someone will click on that link, the default email client will handle that request,   u can test is by userself how other mail programs will take action on that.

u can change default mail client
IE > Tools > internet options > Programs Tab > E-mail > then choose from the list

I'm not sure how this applies to my question on whether web based mail services support this?
