Basics: Linking to an email address

 

It's easy to link to an email address in your email template design. The technical term for these links is 'mailto' links. These are added just like any other link in your email template inside an 'href' field. When your subscriber receives your email with the mailto link, clicking on the link will open the subscriber's default email client with the email address populated in the To: field. From there the subscriber can send off an email to this address.

 

In the 'href' field for your link type in: mailto:emailaddress


Example,
mailto:support@wordfly.com

 

You can also include a subject line in your mailto set up: mailto:emailaddress?subject=Subject


Example,
mailto:support@wordfly.com?subject=WordFly%20is%20awesome!

 

You can even include a subject line and body text: mailto: emailaddress?subject=Subject&body=Body

 

Example, mailto:support@wordfly.com?subject=WordFly%20is%20awesome!&body=Hi%20WordFly,%20We%20love%20you!"

 

 

Be sure to test this out in some test emails before deploying it to subscribers. And also note that mailto links cannot be tracked in reporting because they don't open a browser but open an email client instead.
