Mailto needs to open new window for browser clients

Currently, mailto will close out the flash site and navigate to a browser-based email client. What I’d like it to do is open a new window which it would use to open the email client, instead of using the same window (which closes out the flash site to open the email client).

I tried:

getURL(“mailto:emailAddy”, “_blank”);

But this didn’t do the trick. Any way to do this?
