Simple MailTo href tag

I have to bind the email address to mailto tag. This works but when I click on the link and the "outlook" email opens, the email address isnt displayed in "To" line:
 <a href="mailto:"><asp:Label runat="server" ID="lblEmail" Text='<%# Eval("Email") %>'></asp:Label></a>

I tried this, but the email doesnt even display:

<a href="mailto:" <%# Eval("Email") %> ></a>

It should look something like this: <a href="mailto:test@test.com">

No, it doesnt get displayed on the screen. When I look at the HTML output ,it's like this:

<a href='mailto:c@i.com' ></a>
