Email Link in 6.0 - Adobe Acrobat Windows

In 4.0 I would select the WWW link and use the MAILTO: command to set up an emial link. But in 6.0 if I do this it opens up a browser too. Is there a better way to set up an email link in a PDF doent? Thanks...

    No, a mailto: link will always open a browser.

    I am not sure it will always open the browser. It may only be the default MAPI mail client, which is often the browser as I recall. However, I am am often wrong. Also, I think that if MAPI is not installed on the system, it does not open at all.

    That may be true. I guess I should have said "If it works at all it will always open a browser."

    It's not that the browser is the default MAPI client, it's that Acrobat calls the browser for all "web links" which a mailto: link is.

    Apologies for deviation from main topic.
    I doubt I understood the question.

    I have faced trouble when I make pdf file out of webpage or word file which has some kind of link (may be www or email to) all those links disappear. IS this question related to that?
    If not, can anyone suggest me how to fix this?

    It all depends on how you make the PDF.

    For Word files you have to use the PDFMaker macro (the button or the menu item) to preserve links. If you File/Print to Distiller or "Adobe PDF" you'll lose all that.
