Mailto link inside Outlook 2010 being cached?

We are experiencing a sporadic problem with emails that are generated inside the Outlook 2010 client from a mailto link.
We have a process that sends out emails with embedded mailto links.

After users click on the link to generate an email, it appears that the mailto link is being cached in memory. When new mailto links are clicked, prior mailto emails are sometimes opened.

We've also noticed this behavior occasionally with forwarding an email. It opens an older mailto message.
This is just a normal hyperlink or is something downloaded when they click the link? I've seen files cached like that - it usually means the secure temp folder is either corrupt or just needs emptied.
