An edited 'grep' output showing the modules that put mailto links on
Mailman's web pages is

Archiver/HyperArch.py:                # Point the mailto url back to
the list
Archiver/HyperArch.py:                        URL = 'mailto:' + text
Cgi/admin.py:        Link('mailto:%s' % mailman_owner, mailman_owner),
Cgi/listinfo.py:         Link('mailto:' + siteowner, siteowner),
HTMLFormatter.py:        owner_link = Link('mailto:' +
self.GetOwnerEmail(), ownertext).Format()
HTMLFormatter.py:            mailto = Link('mailto:' +
HTMLFormatter.py:            %(link)s option below.  Contact %(mailto)s
if you have any

There are also mailto links in the HTML templates article.html and
