SMS and Emails blocked

Hi folks.
I've found that my links for SMS and Emails have stopped working.
It's definately WAMP that's causing it as I uploaded my site to a web hoster and it works ok there.

I use this on my site:

<div class="links">
<div class="email"><a href="mailto:mymail@gmail.com">CLICK HERE TO EMAIL ME</a></div>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
<div class="sms"><a href="sms:+44123456789">CLICK HERE TO TEXT ME</a></div>
</div>

Can anyone direct me to where the issue might be?

How is that anything to do with WAMPServer? That code exists in the browser and when clicked will launch your PC's default email client (outlook or a browser for example)

So in no way is WAMPServer (Apache/PHP) related in any way other than the process of sending that HTML to the browser! And that appears to have been done perfectly well as the links are there to click.

Thanks for replying to my question RiggsFolly.

I'm not 100% confident that my issue is down to WAMP, which has worked for a long time without issue.
I'm asking the question to see if anyone has come across this before.

As I said, when I upload my site to another server (123-reg) there is no issue.
It only seems to happen through WAMP. A friend who also uses WAMP tried it for me.

However, I'm now going to ask my ISP if they've changed anything.

Ok,

When you run the version from the 123-reg version are you using the same client PC and Browser as when you run this from a WAMPServer served version?

Hello again RiggsFolly.

I have to admit I’m a plonker.

I’ve managed to discover that the problem is with my ISP and not WAMP.
If I go direct to my IP there is no issue.
However, when I go through my ISP the problem happens everytime.

Thanks for helping
