Mailto Menu Items

I'm trying to create a menu item that is a mailto: link.  But it wants to add a / to the front.  I'm using the Advanced Menu module, but I tried it even before that, so I'm reasonably sure that isn't breaking anything.

Any suggestions.

Nobody else wants to do this or has any workarounds huh?  I'm pretty fed up with DNN, that thing is a beast, but this mailto issue is holding me back on using Orchard for my current project.

NavigationManager has a white list of accepted protocols for links that only admits relative URLs, http and https. Mailto links are bad practice unless you really like spam ;) I would set-up a contact form instead, as I suppose that's what you're trying to do.
