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:[email protected]%22.

\href{"mailto:[email protected]"}{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:[email protected]}{Good Link!}
  • Aha. Simple and obvious, so of course I spent forever trying to figure it out. Thanks!
