html basics email challenge : what is the email we use?

The challenge: "Set the "contact" link to begin composing an email in the user's default email program when clicked." The code:

<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <title>My Page</title>
    <h3>Design & Development</h3>
    <p>Contact me at <a href="mailto:">this email</a>.</p>
    <p>Ā© 2017</p>

The error: "Bummer! Make sure you include a proper email address."

I was curious when I did it too, but any email should work! I put my own in and it allowed me to pass through with no issues :)
