E-mail Links

You can create a link on your web page which will allow anyone who clicks on that link to immediately send you an email to the email account you specify. The procedure to create an e-mail link is very similar to the procedure for creating an internal or external link.

First, highlight the text or image to select the text/image which you want to serve as the e-mail link and click on the Link button on the tool bar.

In the Link Properties window, enter:

mailto:YourAddress@somewhere.someplace

Click "OK" to create the link.

email link

When the user clicks on this link, their computer will automatically launch the default e-mail program on that machine and will enter the email address in the 'To:' field that you specified in the link.
