I have been asked how I created the mailto link.
This is really simple to do:
To write an email link just create an anchor link like you would normally, but instead of http:// write mailto: and then your email address.
If you want to send to multiple people, separate the email addresses with a comma:
Use a question mark after the final “To” email address to indicate you want more than just a “To” line. Then you specify what other elements you would like:
- cc – to send a carbon copy
- bcc – to send a blind carbon copy
- subject – for the subject line
You treat the elements as name=value pairs.
To add multiple elements, separate the second and subsequent elements with an ampersand (&).
If I substituted email@example.com for toaddress; firstname.lastname@example.org for ccaddress; email@example.com for bccaddress and An Email To Steve for Whatever, the result would be a blank email, with the field entries below:
- To: firstname.lastname@example.org
- CC: email@example.com
- BCC: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Subject: An Email To Steve
Note:You might end up with a lot of SPAM, using the mailto, due to webbot scanning.
