 From what I recall, this is a bug specific to El Capitan. The user will 
encounter this only if the default e-mail program is not switched from 
Mail to something before the upgrade or installation of El Capitan.. For 
example, I used MailMate with Yosemite, and switched my default client 
to MailMate and did not encounter this bug. Unfortunately, I do not 
think there is a way for the end-user to fix this though I hope that is 
wrong for your benefit.
