If the above links don’t seem to work, it’s probably because your Web browser is not set up to open email links. What should happen is that your email program opens up and creates a new email ready for you to start typing your message. It is easy to set this up, for example, in Firefox. And here is a blog entry about setting Gmail to be your default email when using Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari.
If these suggestions work (or even more importantly don’t work) for you, please let Web Weaver know as I can't test them myself! If you have links to other helpful sites that can help people set their browser up correctly, please do send them to WebWeaver.
