There is a typo in strings.c that prevents the proper generation of mailto: links for email names with numbers [0-9] in them. Such as


is being converted to "".

To correct this, in strings.c change

#define VALID_IN_EMAIL_ADD "a-zA-Z0-0_.-"


#define VALID_IN_EMAIL_ADD "a-zA-Z0-9_.-"


This has been corrected in the baseline and will be in the next release.
