Overview

This article will show you how to add an email hyperlink to a page.

Formatting Options for Mailto Link

To send to one email address:

  • mailto:first@mail.com 

To send to multiple email addresses:

  • mailto:first@mail.com, second@mail.com, third@mail.com
    OR
  • mailto:first@mail.com; second@mail.com; third@mail.com
  • Note: Be aware that these methods will not always work because email clients treat emails differently, so you are better off creating an email group, or building a form in the form center that will email to multiple users. Then you can just build a link to the form instead of to an email address.

To CC or BCC:

  • mailto:first@mail.com?cc=second@mail.com&bcc=third@mail.com
  • Note: Be aware that these methods will not always work because email clients treat emails differently, so you are better off creating an email group, or building a form in the form center that will email to multiple users. Then you can just build a link to the form instead of an email address.

To set the subject line:

  • mailto:someone@example.com?Subject=Hello again

To set the body:

  • mailto:someone@example.com?Subject=Hello again&body=Body goes here

Combining these options:

  • If you want multiple elements start with a ? after your email address, then place an & between each of the sections.
  • mailto:first@mail.com?cc=second@mail.com&subject=Hello Again&body=Body goes here
  • Note: Some mail clients will not support these combinations. So, you may have to choose one option after your email like mailto:someone@example.com?Subject=Hello again.
