When adding contact information to a post we always encourage using the contact info fields or relating a profile via the related people & profile field. But in some scenarios you may need to use the WYSIWYG editor to add inline mailto links and you can do some really neat things with them.
A basic mailto link will open a user's default mail program and starts a new message with the To field already populated.
In some cases you may want the message to have a specific Subject or Body and you can choose what these will be. Note that the e-mail does not send automatically and before sending it the user can change any of these fields.
To make a mailto link, highlight the text you want to turn into a link and click the add link icon.
A box will appear, change the link type to E-mail. You can then choose the default to, subject, and body content.
There are a few additional fields you can populate if you need to but requires editing the HTML, the CC and BCC e-mail fields. You can edit the HTML by clicking the Source button.
|&cc=||to set the CC recipient(s)|
|&bcc=||to set the BCC recipient(s)|
