if you use a mailto: it will open the default mail client.

depending on if you're using aS2 or AS3 , use getURL or navigateToURL respectively.

Yup...  The getURL() function should work as long as the user's computer has a default email program set up whether it is Outlook or Gmail...  Otherwise, the call won't do anything...

Thank you for the point, but I think blue-genie actually deserves the point on this question...  She pretty much answered your question in the first place and I just aided abit...  I don't know if you want to solve this situation better or not or how to solve this, but please split the point if you have multiple number of helpful answers...  That'll make all of us happy...  :)
