So: I popped this in a button of my stack:

on mouseUp
    revMail "ZZZ at gmail.com", "QQQ at gmail.com", "Test", "Message sent from 
LiveCode-HTML5"
end mouseUp

 From the stack that button opened my email client (Thunderbird) and 
filled in all the required boxes.

Absolutely fantastic!!!

BUT, from the same stuck, once hived-off as an HTML5 thing the button 
didn't work.
