Is there a bug in the Android Gmail app where the "=" sign is stripped from a mailto link's body?
0
When sending an email to a gmail address, if that email has a mailto link with a body parameter that contains a url with a query parameter, everything after the "=" sign in that query parameter is removed, but only in the Android Gmail App.

It functions correctly when clicking on the mailto link in Chrome and iOS. I've also tested with both an "=" and "%3D". 

Below is an example of an email message with a mailto link that will hide everything after the "%3D" when clicking on the mailto link in the Android Gmail app:

This is a test of a <a href="mailto:test@email.com?subject=This%20is%20a%20test&body=Here%20is%20the%20text%20of%20my%20email.%0A%0D%0ACheck%20out%20www.google.com%3Ftest%3Dtrue%0A%0D%0AThis%20text%20will%20be%20removed%20in%20the%20Android%20gmail%20app">test mailto link</a>

Hello!

Any news? Are we on the right place to report this?
There is also a similar post in stackoverflow about this issue: 

Just to know if it's a bug or a feature ;)?
(RFC 6068 seems to be on our side)

Is there a specific form or an email to report this bug directly to Android Gmail developers?

Thanks
