Transcript:Link a Website to an Email Address in HTMLHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing. Today I'll show you how to add a link from your website to an email address so viewers can contact you.
Add the Email Link TagFirst, open your html document of the page where you want the link to go. Type an a tag, then href=mailto:(semicolon)email@example.com the text you want on your page, I'll type Email Don (close brackets and close the a tag if you haven t done so already).
a href= mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Email Don /a
Add a CC, BCC, and Email SubjectsYou can also add a cc, bcc or subject to emails customers send you. To do this type the address as you did already, but follow it with a question mark then type cc=anotheremailaddress or bcc=emailaddress or for a subject type subject=subject text. If you want more than one of these elements, like a cc and a subject, simply type an ampersand between them.
I want to add a cc and a subject. My link looks like this.
When I click on the link my mail program opens with the email addresses all ready to go. Thanks for watching. To learn more, visit computing.about.com.
