Title

setting up button for email address/using mailto

Post

I have a db with several hundred entries (which each contain several email addresses).  I was originally setting up with buttons attached to each of them, using the "send mail" script, but have since realized that filemaker doesn't open a blank outlook/alt email client window if done this way.  The only way I have found to do this, is to have mailto:  at the beginning of the email address and have it set up as "open url" script.  Unfortunately every email address i have so far entered doesn't have this.

Is there a way to add "mailto:" to a field at the beginning?  Or is there a way to make "send mail" do what the "open url" is doing without actually adding the "mailto:"?

thanks to anyone able to give me a hand with this.
