I don't think a link is what you want here. You only get one piece of
information out of box when you click on a link,
e.g. mailto:jkitchin@andrew.cmu.edu (in my org-mode) will open a message
addressed to me. It is conceivable you could use syntax like
[[mailto:some@email.com][Some subject]], but you would need to get the
element at point to get to the Some subject part.

It is easier to use a headline as the subject, and properties of the
headline to store the email address. See the function here:


Which sends an org-headline as an email with the headline as the
subject, and contents as the body. After you send the email, it stores
who you sent it to, and when as properties of that headline.

There are some other simpler email functions in there too.
