There is not enough information to understand what you actually want

From what I GUESS you want I would say not possible

You cannot send anything with a mailto link, only text and you cannot rely on the person clicking to have installed a working email client that handles mailto links. What kind of attachment do you have in mind?

You need a server process

How many clicks will that save you?
Anyway I do not know such a thing and it would not be trivial to write since it has to interact with your mail client, which could be one of many. VBA could likely be used for ie+outlook

Any email client the expert recommends.  Theoretically,  I would need to curl download and save every page and extract so email with pattern.  And then save and send using a server.  I have clicked on many html mailto links where email client (thunderbird, outlook) can send an email and with footer. Second click is email send button.

But I need to attach same attachment which takes many more clicks and computer needs to find searching through folders.

I have seen people spend all day sending out resumes.
