Making a clickable link to an email address

You can add a link that allows sending an email from the website page. This link activates the default mail client on the computer for sending an email. Now your visitors don’t have to go to the Contact page to send an email, they can simply click and send an email to you from anywhere on your site.

Important: The web browser requires a default email client software installed on your visitor’s computer in order to activate the email client. This could be Gmail, Apple Mail, etc. For example, if your visitor has Microsoft Outlook as a default mail client, pressing a Send email link will open a new mail window.

Adding a text link to send email

On your website page, navigate to the area where you want to insert the Send email link. Highlight the text to which you want to add a link to activate the menu.
