Linking to e‑mail Addresses

Inserting a link to an e‑mail address makes it quick and easy for your site visitors to communicate with you.  When viewers click the link, their default e‑mail program appears, opens a new e‑mail message and inserts the e‑mail address you specify into the To line.  To add a link to an e‑mail address into your web page:

  1. In the Content Editor, place your cursor where you'd like to insert the link.  Alternatively, if you want to turn some existing text or an image into a hyperlink, select the text (or image) you want the user to click.
    While rare, it is possible that some people won't have their system configured properly to take advantage of these links.  Therefore, we recommend using your actual e‑mail address as the link text.  That way, even if viewers don't have their system configured, they can still see your address and e‑mail you manually.
  2. Click the Hyperlink Manager icon (the one that looks like a globe with two enclosed chain links.

  3. In the screen that appears, click the e‑mail tab.

  4. Type the destination e‑mail address in the Address field and, if necessary, some Link Text (if that field is not already filled out).  In the Subject field, enter a default subject for the message.  Of course, users can change this text when they create the message.
  5. Finally, click OK to insert your link into your web page.
