I am trying to use the hyperlink control to perform mailto and with the code below it is not clickable, and using the target code in navigateurl opens a page that errors saying another version of outlook is currently running. I don't want a user to have to close outlook to use the mailto link ... thats absurd.

any help would be greatly appreciated:

        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" 
            Target="mailto:me@123.com?subject=My Subject" 
            ToolTip="mailto:me@123.com" 
            NavigateUrl="mailto:me@123.com?subject=My Subject">My Name.</asp:HyperLink>
