When clicking on an email address in a website, and Yahoo web mail is the default mail client, the TO address is prepended with the "mailto:" tag, and of course bounces. Why and what to do about it?

In a website, when an email link is clicked, the "mailto:email@address" tag is called, which opens the default mail client.

A friend has Yahoo web mail as his default mail client. When he clicks on such an email link in a website, the TO address appears in the new email form prepended with the "mailto:" tag, as in mailto:robertlob@hughes.net. This of course bounces.

I don't use web mail, so can't help him, but maybe you can provide a reason or a cure for this. Thank you.
