That's exactly why it's better to provide a form in the first place, and
never bother with email links.  You shouldn't assume that the user has
access to their email on the same machine.

In answer to your question, I don't know about WebTV.  I think it does have
email, and will probably allow the use of email links.  Look at for proper information. (You can also download
their WebTV viewer for your desktop machine).

Hope this helps,
