I'm essentially trying to do what is in the link above without having a default mail program set. Put '' in a shortcut on windows and have it to open a mail program of your choice and put that addy in the too field. Something like firefox does would be ideal.

Firefox Example

What I'm wanting to do with this is to put it in dropbox and have a clickable shortcut to email my teacher when I need to.

You can put something like this in your shortcut:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

It'll open the mailto link using firefox, so you should get the firefox dialog options.
