Mailto URLs not working in Promoted Links
Until about 2 weeks ago, we were able to use Mailto: URLs in our SharePoint Online Promoted Links. Now they don't work. When in the list view, the links works fine when clicked on, when in the tile view, nothing happens when you click on the link.
When looking at the source code, the "click action=" is empty.
We have used this extensively for Contact Us pages. Is it a bug, or does SharePoint Online not longer support Mailto: from the Promoted Links Tiles view?
I've tested this and if you set the link to 'open in new tab' in it works.
Same problem here

same problem here on my SharePoint online site - not wanting to get into custom code for a fix. Expected bug fix coming from Microsoft here?

For those that can't wait for a fix on this issue, I have a solution on my blog that works with the promoted links list and the mailto links do work: http://www.markrackley.net/2016/10/29/sharepoint-responsive-promoted-links/
