I was able to add a mailto: link to Wiki page weeks ago.   Just spent an hour to try and add the following to same wiki page. 

 

[I am a mail link](mailto:webmaster@example.com)

 

I add a space then nothing.

When using "Copy Email address" option on the working mailto link, All I get is the label not the email address.

This seems to be a limitation of the Wiki: Can you open a support ticket and share ticket ID here?
A small update from my side: It seems this behavior is by design. I will try to figure out if this can change in the future

I dont think I understand.   The image I sent a working email link on the same wiki page to which I am trying to add a second email link. The first one worked, the second one failed.   What part is "by design"?
