Links for Email
This is the method used to create an email link within an HTML document:
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">Send us mail</a>
The email address of the recipient is located within the HTML code after “mailto:” — use the complete email address. The code will invoke the browser’s default email application and automatically place the enclosed email address in the “to:” field.
Any text description (or image) can be placed between the
<a href="mailto:email@example.com"> and
</a> tags. Clicking on that text or image will then launch the email application.
You can specify multiple email addresses in an email link by separating them with commas. Example:
If you find a broken link, please <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">send email</a> and we'll fix it as soon as possible.
