USe email within SIlverlight OOB app

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Im trying to open the default email client on a users system from a SL OOB application.

I have tried this:

<HyperlinkButton  NavigateUri="mailto:email@address.com" Content="HyperlinkButton" Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="72,114,0,0" Name="HyperlinkButton2" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="100" />
Which from my web readings should work but for me it throws a page not found error.

Does anyone have any idea why this might not be working for me.
