Fixed for HEAD and IMP 4.1.4, but will require changes in Horde 3.1.4 
to work properly in all situations (mainly non-cookie sessions).

This happens when a mailto: link is in an HTML mail, and sessions are 
GET-based. I think we need to catch this before go.php, since sending 
the raw path through in go.php for anything that looks like a mailto:
probably opens other holes.

My best idea so far is to trap for mailto: in the HTML MIME Viewer, or 
Horde::externalUrl(), and to call mail/composeLink with the mailto 
arg. Objections, better ideas, thoughts?

If I click on a mailto url in an incoming html message a new but empty 
window opens.

Using Firefox 1.0.7 or IE 6 the url bar says:


And the page is blank.

Of course I would expect a new message composing window with filled in 
To field.

The source of the html message around the mailto link:

<a target="_blank"


   title=mailto:somebody@somewhere.hu size=2><SPAN

   title=mailto:somebody@somewhere.hu HordeCleaned="COLOR: navy"><SPAN


I have two sites running IMP, both with IMP 4.0.4, one on Horde 3.0.5, 
and one on Horde 3.0.7. Both do the same.

Anyway I set $mime_drivers['imp']['html']['inline'] to true in one of 
the sites, which does not change the above behaviour. Html messages do 
the same either in a new window or shown inline.
