Adding a Mailto Link

It's nice to put a link in a web page to allow a viewer to send email. This type of link is called a mailto link. The Dreamweaver Email Link object helps you implement a mailto link. The user must have an email application set up to work with the browser in order for these links to work.

To create a mailto link, select some text to be the link. Click the Email Link object (in the Common panel of the Insert bar), and the Email Link dialog box appears (see Figure 5.12). Enter the email address and click OK. The text looks like a hyperlink, but instead of linking to another page, it opens a preaddressed email message.
