I am working on a email that has a link to an email address in it.
It current links to: mailto:XXXX.org.
The only issue I am having is that before the email box pops up in outlook it opens a new window.
You should always turn off tracking for mailto: links. Read this post for more: http://blog.teknkl.com/stop-trying-to-track-mailto-links-if-you-want-them-to-work/
There could be a few ways to solve this. Do you have a sample of the full <a></a> you are using?
<a href="mailto: XXXXX@XXX.org" target="_blank" id="" style="color: #000000;">XXXXX@XXX.org</a>
I do not believe you need the target="_blank". Try taking that out and see if that works.
Taking out the target="_blank" isn't the solution, because as long as it's an offsite link, most mail clients will apply an implicit "_blank" to it anyway. You need to turn off tracking so the link is a pure mailto: URL (not http: URL) which will allow mail clients to intelligently keep the link target within the app.
