what email client is on that machine: maybe it doesn't understand the mailto: syntax which  is pretty standard on the net though, so if it doesn't work like that I'm not sure there's much we can do about it.

mail to is Micros. Outlook. I have an old pdf file which again has an email button and that seems to work fine. Once I created the new one, that gives me the error.
