Emails link doesn't open
After setting up the link to my gmail account, and clicking it in the refreshed website, all of the links work except the mailto: link to my gmail account. Below is my code. I don't think the browser is blocking it (it's in Chrome, so you'd think it would like it), but the other phone and Twitter links open their respective apps (phone is wierd, but still opens something). Thanks in advance.

David Keller 739 2d ago The link would work if you had a resident email program on your computer. For example microsoft outlook. Which a lot of business and professionals do still. Which it still makes it a handy link to have. so I see nothing wrong with it as it is. Just like where the the telephone link would launch skype on a PC; if you have it installed. If you dont; it wont.
