All,

I have a mailto hyperlink on my page and Outlook is my default mail client. When I click on this link it opens a new outlook window. I am wondering does mailto hyperlink opens only outlook or does it open any default mail client.

Thanks

If no particular email client is configured in the browser, then it should open the default one. This is generally a browser setting, though; e.g., in Firefox under Preferences -> Applications for "mailto".
