Basics: Linking to an email address

 

It's easy to link to an email address in your design. The technical term for these links is mailto: links. These are added just like any other link in your design inside an href field. When your recipient clicks the mailto link it will open the default email client on the device with the email address populated in the To: field.

 

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. And also note that mailto links cannot be tracked in email reporting because they don't open a browser but open an email client instead.
