Call the default mail client, whatever it might be... Outlook, Netscape Composer, etc.

Consider offering a different option, too. mailto: can be a real pain in an environment where the users don't have mail access, or only certain users do.
Allow us to specify a 'helper application' for mailto:. In a computer lab or a library, that might just be a little program that pops up a window saying that mail has been disabled -- which is a lot kinder than some browsers approaches of either not doing anything (the "light" version of Navigator), or opening a window to "help" the user configure an email client.
Also, a few email clients don't work as well with MAPI as they should. If it were possible to specify the command to handle mailto:, these mailers could be accomodated too.
