I realize ... not just an Orchard issue ... but there may be an Asp.Net solution for:

  • Orchard page with mailto link gets replaced by browser (gmail / hotmail etc) and orchard app goes away  

    Lookinf for solution to open webmail in a new window / tab ( how to ?? )
  • Default mail client is Outlook or another installed executable .... The Orchard page will stay in browser and mail client opens up ... but then the code for handling browser-based mail becomes a problem, yes ?

One alternative is to code a form for user to create message ... is that the best practice or has anyone been able to implement solution with mailto per the above ??

Well, you are right, this is not an Orchard issue at all.

Best practice to be frank, is not to use mailto: links at all. They are spam magnets. Use contact forms instead.
