How do you create an Email Link? 033

 How do you create an Email Link?

There are two main ways to create an email link in HTML:

1. Using the mailto: scheme:

This is the simplest and most common way to create an email link. Here's the basic structure:


<a href="">Link Text</a>

Replace with the actual email address you want to link to. The Link Text is what users will see and click on.

2. Using the <a> tag with subject, body, and other details:

While less common, you can also create a more detailed email link with pre-filled subject, body text, and even carbon copy (Cc) and blind carbon copy (Bcc) recipients. Here's an example:


<a href=",%20I%20have%20some%20feedback%20for%20your%20website.&">Provide Feedback</a>

Here's a breakdown of the additional parameters:

  • subject=: sets the pre-filled subject line in the email.

  • body=: adds pre-filled text in the email body.

  • cc=: specifies additional email addresses to receive a copy (visible to recipients).

  • bcc=: specifies additional email addresses to receive a copy (hidden from other recipients).

Important Notes:

  • Email links created with mailto: are not secure as the email address is visible in the URL. Consider using a secure contact form for sensitive information.

  • Different email clients might handle these links differently, so test your links thoroughly before deployment.

  • These methods only create the link, not a clickable button or styled element. You can use CSS to style the link as needed.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
