Hyperlink to email address not working

Hi, I'm a noobie, so please be gentle...
I searched under link and hyperlink and didn't find the answer to this issue. I have an email, registrar@sacred-celebration.com that is not linking correctly on my site.

When I hover or click on the link, this is what shows up Registrar@sacredcelebration.com, which won't work because the dash is missing. Something is compressing the email address rendering it unusable.

The email address is scattered throughout my site, but here's a page with it, for example:
Could you tell me how I can fix this?

Much gratitude!

If you look at the page or post where the emal address is and switch to html view you will see the following.
HTML Code:
<a href="mailto:Registrar@sacredcelebration.com">registrar@sacred-celebration.com</a>
You need to have the dash in the item after mailto: as well as the text so it would look like
HTML Code:
<a href="mailto:registrar@sacred-celebration.com">registrar@sacred-celebration.com</a>
The text between >< is just what shows to the viewer. You could have anything there . For instance you could have
HTML Code:
<a href="mailto:Registrar@sacred-celebration.com">Email the Registrar</a>
Which would show "Email the Registrar" to the viewer but when they clicked on it they would email to registrar@sacred-celebration.com.
