URL in Email to Open Remote DB not Clickable

I have the URL and I know how to email, but I can't seem to make the method user friendly for my users.

 

What I would like:

Filemaker Pro sends out an email to a user using SMTP. The user opens the email and clicks on the link in the email. FileMaker Pro launches and the file opens.

 

What happens:

Filemaker Pro sends out an email to a user using SMTP. The user opens the email and sees the link in the email. The User cannot click on the link as the email program doesn't recognize fmp://host/db as a clickable link.

 

What can I do to make it so the user doesn't have to select the "link", copy it, switch to a Browser, paste, hit return - then FileMaker will open.

How does this work on an iPad?

 

Thanks

Zorba
