Hi,
I've developed an application and on the front page, the ABOUT button opens a small window containing with version number and contact details to get help, i.e. name, phone number and email address. Is it possible to embed the email address as a 'mailto' link as opposed to standard text?
Thanks Celine

You can create a button, which calls WEB in the callback:
web('mailto:your.mail@address.org');
Yair has described how a borderless button can be drawn: Undocumented:Borderless button. If you use this, care for at least an underlined style, otherwise the user does not get the impression, that this is a link.

Here's a demo.
In that demo, replace this line
th.ButtonDownFcn = @(~,~)web('mathworks.com');
with this
th.ButtonDownFcn = @(~,~)web('mailto:your.mail@address.org');
