U4-722 - Feature: Add TinyMCE email address detection (mailto)

Created by Tom Fulton 30 Aug 2012, 20:48:27 Updated by Sebastiaan Janssen 02 Sep 2012, 18:26:57

Subtask of: U4-136

In the stock TinyMCE, when you enter an email address into the "Insert Link" dialog, it gives you a prompt to auto-add the mailto: prefix:

The URL you entered seems to be an email address. Do you want to add the required mailto: prefix?

For some reason this is removed in the Umbraco version - I think its leftover from a long time ago.

The fix and problem is described here: http://our.umbraco.org/forum/using/ui-questions/18815-TinyMce-not-recognizing-email-links#comment71141

I've submitted a pull request with the fix from that post. We've tested this on one live site with no issues.
