Why can't I add a mailto link to the Quick Links web part?

I really like the features of the Quick Links web part, but I need to be able to add a mailto: link... Is this going to be added soon? I can't be the only one needing to do this!

Since this is a very particular request, I would recommend to create a user voice item in SharePoint user voice so other can vote and the SharePoint Team decides to improve the Quick Links WebPart to provide this support

Can you provide a link to where I'd do that?

Agree with Juan, I'd vote for it if there isn't one there. Don't know how many times I've went to use mailto: on those links and couldn't. However, your work around is create a link on a url shortening service that supports open links like mailto. This one worked http://tny.im/ put in your mailto: link and then just use that as your Quick Link, works great.

Another alternative is to add a mailto: link to an image. Mailto works on an image.
