Mail messages in Mosaic

In the current version of Mosaic it is possible to Mail a document page to
another user.

It would be useful to be able to mail to a user, having selected an anchor from
the text

For example:-

For further information please contact

Dr P Smith, The Rectory, XYZ University, <p>
Telephone: 801-4367 <p>
email id : <p>

<a mail=" : REF page #1234:DEFAULT-TEXT returnmsg1"> MAIL NOW </a>

The reference would be given to enable the intended recipient to remove his/her name
from a document which caused a large volume of unwanted mail to be generated.

User activation of the anchor would cause a suitable MAIL COMPOSE window to pop
up, possibly including a default message for filling in by the respondent - which could
of course be held in a separate file with its own URL.

Ideas like this may bave been discussed before - they would sure be useful.

(Of course in the future, telephone dialling could be included also!)
