What is a mailto link?
In this article, you'll learn what mailto is and how to use EasyRetro Mailto Link Generator. According to the page on Wikipedia:
mailto is a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) scheme for email addresses. It is used to produce hyperlinks on websites that allow users to send an email to a specific address directly from an HTML document, without having to copy it and entering it into an email client.
In other words, it is a hyperlink embedded to a document that, once clicked, will open the user's default email client - like Gmail, and create a draft email with the right params, like:
- carbon copy (cc)
- blind carbon copy (bcc)
A mailto link can contain one or several of the parameters above.
How to use EasyRetro Mailto Link Generator
Here we'll go through each field of our tool and give some advice on how to fill it.
To, or recipient
The most basic one is the email address of the recipient. Usually, it will be filled with your own address or the email address for your company.
Cc, or Carbon copy
This one should be filled with the email address of a secondary recipient, e.g., when both the support and customer experience departments need to receive the message.
Bcc, or Blind carbon copy
Bcc is similar to the Cc field, but each recipient will not be able to view the email addresses filled like Blind carbon copy.
It's like the title of your email, showing up on email notifications and email clients. Here you can type something like: "Contact about the UX designer job opening".
The email body is the complete message that you want to send. For a mailto link, it can be some generic text that will give you some context, like: "I was reading your blog post about UX design services and wanted to hear more about it!".
Last but not least, the Link text is not related to the mailto itself, but to links in general. You can fill it with any text you want, and we will generate an anchor tag in HTML with the proper mailto link as an attribute!
A good option for this field would be something like "Contact us".
