Can a "mailto:" link be used within Rise?

I'm currently testing out and learning rise.  In an introductory "lesson" we would like to show photos and contact info for staff. I would like to make the staff person's email address be a link that would open the learner's email app.  I tried editing the embed link function in rise, but no matter what, it automatically appends "http://" in front of the "mailto:" link.  Any help will be appreciated.

Dear Alyssa,

With the buttons it works fine, I was referring to the nice auto-effect when in the regular paragraph you type text, an email, then press enter, and Rise automatically because of @ recognizes it as an email. only it creates a ling which is in a format "http:s://mailto:...." -- the substring "https " or http, is added automatically, making this link broken and mailto not working. If I manually update the link to the mailto: by removing the http substring - it still doesn't work.

Hi Kevin! You may have missed it but Alyssa previously shared that we've already updated how hyperlinking works in Rise 360. 

Now, when you add an email address in Rise, it correctly parses the link as a mailto: link.
