The following code works and produces a mailto link within a pdf document. However, when opened with Adobe Acrobat, the link becomes file:///path/to/document/%22mailto:foo@bar.abc%22.

\href{"mailto:foo@bar.abc"}{Broken Link!}

Is there a way within LaTeX to encode mailto links to be more compatible with Adobe?


Don't quote your URL:

\href{mailto:foo@bar.abc}{Good Link!}
