link to e-mail

Put the email address in the field and make it's style "Link". Lock the 
field.
Then put this script in the field:

on linkClicked pLink
   revGoURL "mailto:" & pLink
end linkClicked

If you want to add a default subject use
	revGoURL "mailto:" & pLink & "?subject=Very important stuff"
but this may not work with all emailers (although it shouldn't cause any 
problems).

Note that this script assumes that any linked text is an email address. 
If you have other links, you will need to check pLink first to see how 
you should handle it.

Cheers,
Sarah
