I need to insert email links into PDF output. I have been doing
this with

\url{mailto: na...@xxx.com}

and using hyperref. This works fine; the objection is that the
"mailto:" shows up in the output. Is there a way to have

\url{na...@xxx.com}

implicitly recognized as an email address (rather than a file)
by hyperref?

Thanks!

using hyperref, you can do this:
\href{mailto:ma...@nomail.com}{ma...@nomail.com}

\href{mailto:na...@xxx.com}{\nolinkurl{na...@xxx.com}}

What does the \nolinkurl do, and is it "wrong" if I don't use it (eg
\href{mailto:na...@xxx.com}{na...@xxx.com}? The output is not entirely the
same but similar (there are blue link boxes, and the text and mailto are
appearing in both cases...)

\nolinkurl is under control of url.sty.
