Please consider to use eplain.  From the eplain manual:

   \href{mailto:tex-eplain at tug.org}{Eplain mailing list}

Otherwise I suggest to reverse engineer the LaTeX hyperref package.
Just write a tiny LaTeX file which does what you need.  Then re-define
the pdfTeX primitive \pdfliteral so that it writes to screen or
to the log file instead of to the PDF file.  Then you can use
\pdfliteral in plain TeX yourself and know what it expects.

But I'm convinced that using eplain is the best solution.  It offers
much more than just email support.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
