    so far I have not found any post or other hint on the internet as to why the HTC Mail app (pre-installed on Android-based devices such as HTC Wildfire or Desire) cannot handle mailto: links with URL-encoded characters in its body correctly.

    The link mailto:a@b.com?subject=mailtotest&body=new%20link%20is%20http%3A%2F%2Fmydomain.org%2Fscript.php%3Fid%3Ds89arghbiu should resolve to the following in any mail client (and it does in all others except HTC Mail):
    To: a@b.com
    Subject: mailtotest
    Content: new link is http://mydomain.org
    In HTC Mail, what I get is this:
    To: a@b.com
    Subject: mailtotest
    Content: new link is http://mydomain.org
    And even worse, content following line breaks correctly encoded with %0D%0A (or any one of these two characters) is also completely ignored/cut off. This way, I don't stand any chance of letting users sending meaningful mailswith hyperlinks from within web pages using the standard mail app installed on HTC devices (which most HTC/Android will be using, I guess).
    I personally use K-9 Mail which - like Google Mail - works as expected with such mailto links.

    Any idea/hint or help is appreciated greatly!

    TIA, regards,
