It will open up a new tab but nothing else. April 2, 2014 at 10:31 #18351 Bill RobbinsModerator Jeff, A mailto email link will open up in the user’s desktop email application if they have a default one installed. If they don’t, then nothing will really happen. Typically you’ll want to avoid using mailto links and go with a contact form that generates an email to your address. If you do want to include a mailto address, I would probably place it in a more typical text area so users can copy and paste it if they want to use it. If I can help, let me know, Bill April 2, 2014 at 10:48 #18352 SRVIVRParticipant Oh. I guess I though I’ve had them open up before in my browser with Gmail. No big deal. Thanks for the enlightenment. April 2, 2014 at 11:06 #18353 Bill RobbinsModerator It can work that way, but with people using computers outside of their own person one it can not work as well. I’d go with a contact form and list your email address. Author Posts Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) The topic ‘Mailto:’ is closed to new replies.
