Er. Your mail client doesn't seem to have added a References or
In-Reply-To header[*], but AFAICT from the list archives you're replying
to a message at least nearly two years old. A little more context would
have helped...

[Summary: some browsers seem to convert all parts of a mailto URI to lower
case for no apparent reason.]

Meanwhile, the answer appears to be that it is a browser bug. Assuming the
behaviour exists in the latest version, submit a bug report to the
vendor(s)/author(s). They might fix it or they might not. Not really
on-topic for this list.

[*] I was going to suggest that this might be because it was probably a
reply to a message from the archives available on the web, but the
"respond to this message link" includes them...
