Most likely a browser issue vs mac/windows.  Which browsers are you using on Apple vs Windows?  Have you tried other browsers like Chrome, Firefox?

Which email clients?

Just because RFC2368 has the standard does not mean clients have to abide by them.

I pasted your HTML in and could not get it to work.. but if I change it to just a link I had no issues on IE or Chrome using Outlook.

<a href="mailto:jan.tankersley@house.ga.gov, ron.stephens@house.ga.gov?cc=stephen.allison@house.ga.gov, jimmy.pruett@house.ga.gov&amp;subject=Repeal The Suppressor Ban&amp;body=Representatives, I am located in Bryan County, District 160, and also a constituent of one of the districts that you represent (Districts: 155, 157, 158, 159, 160, 161, 162, 163, 164, 165, 166, 168, or 169) .
