Follow this link to create your link
This guide shows you how to create a 'mailto' link, which you can add to your website or email campaign.
What is a mailto link?
A mailto link is a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) scheme for email addresses. It is a type of HTML or URL link that activates the default mail client (Gmail, Outlook etc.) on the computer for sending an e-mail.
In real terms, these links are often used so that the recipient of an email can click a link within the body of the email, which will launch a window to start composing an email to a specified email address. It can be an effective way to cut down the number of steps required for a recipient to reach out to the email sender and acts as an effective call-to-action.
The user's web browser requires a default e-mail client software installed on their computer to activate the e-mail client.
