You can only really rely on the "to" address making through a mailto
link. And even then, it's only going to work when someone has a
configured mail client on the system.
It isn't going to work with someone using a friend's computer, a
computer in a library, many computers at work (they'll probably use an
inappropriate work address), and many people at home who never use a
real mail client. Unfortunately, to a great number of the public, their
own knowledge of email is using something like Hotmail.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I
read messages from the public lists.
