View Full Version : email in flash

okay, so i have created this site


and the email links in the contact section used to work. but since MSN passport has taken over hotmail the email links do not work. i am not sure what i am doing wrong bc it used to work.

i am using the " mailto:[email protected]" in the get URL action.

any suggestions would be fanastic and so appreciated!!

thank you!

Assuming I understand your question correctly ...

The mailto: protocol will trigger whatever the users default email application is, since yours is hotmail that's what happens, however i use something different so I will get different results.
I dont believe the flash is involved in this one.

Given you have the proper host support, you can use a server side application to send the email for you, that could solve your problem

I can send you an email just fine -- I think the Mod here is right -- it has nothing to do with flash.

If you are not receiving emails to this address anymore, then it has nothing to do with your site and everything to do with your email account.

Otherwise, I'll send you one for the hell of it -- looked fine to me!
