Chapter 19. Extras > Souping Up Mailto Links

Souping Up Mailto Links

When a visitor clicks a mailto link, the browser switches to a mail client and opens a new message window, pre-addressed with the recipient as defined in the mailto link (see page 124). You can add information to the mailto link to automatically set the subject, cc, and bcc lines as well.

To soup up mailto links:

1.
Type <A HREF="mailto:joe@site.com, as usual.

2.
Type ?subject=topic, where topic is the text you want to appear in the subject line.

Or type ?cc=person@site.com, where person@site.com is the e-mail address of the person you want to be cc'd automatically.

Or type ?bcc=person@site.com, where person@site.com is the e-mail address of the person you want to be bcc'd automatically.

3.
Finally, type the closing ">.

4.
Type the clickable text.

5.
And then type >/A> to complete the link.
