I've got a simple link that opens a mail message:

<a href="mailto:help@solutions.com"

If I select a new mail message in Outlook, it opens and works fine, using the "Normal" format style for the body text.

But, with the mailto: link, it opens a new message using "Paragraph" format style for the body text.

Any ideas how to get Outlook to use "normal" instead of "paragraph" from a mailto: href link?

Make sure to close the <a> tag. The one you posted above isn't closed.

Also, consider span tags inside the <a> tags because some clients otherwise default to their skin colors. For instance, gMail (I think) causes all links to stay blue even if you inline-style a different color UNLESS a span is inside the a tag.
