Creating a button whose link is to a "mailto" works when I export to the Web, but it does not work on a webapp

Might be worth taking a look at this:

I'm wondering if using the Hyperlinks widget (in5 > Interactive Widgets) to ensure it opens in a window might make a difference, since the Web App environment is somewhat unique.

Note from the link above that the system has to be configured with a default email client.
Were you able to make an progress on this issue?
Hi Justin Thanks for the link !!! They helped me a lot.
On most devices it has worked. But I am considering with the link directing the user to a form and thus not depending on its configuration.
Thank you very much, a pleasure!!
Happy to help. :-)

I'll copy that comment to answer so that it's easier for others to see as well.
