Create a link to an email address (mailto: link)

March 31, 2010

The WYSIWYG editor does not have a built-in mailto: option but you can still easily create a link to an email address.

  1. Highlight what you want to become a link (preferably the person’s name or their full e-mail address spelled out).
  2. Choose the Insert/Edit link button from the WYSIWYG toolbar.
  3. Choose the External Link tab.
  4. In the Link field enter mailto: followed by the e-mail address (mailto:web_services-l@clemson.edu).
  5. Add a title to describe the link (Email Web Services).
  6. Choose the Insert button.
  7. Choose Submit.
