In one of my article I told you about how to make html mailers. Now I am going to tell you about html mailto command. The mailto command just create hyperlinks that will directly launch the default email software and compose a new email message. Every designer and developer probably know how to use the mailto command for quickly linking to one email address but there is so much more that you can do with the mailto links.
you can address the same message to multiple addresses, add cc (to send a carbon copy ), bcc(to send a blind carbon copy ) or subject fields, and even write text inside the email body.
The mailto Syntax
Send simple email to
Send an email to multiple recipients
Send a email to with carbon copy (CC)
Send a email to with blind carbon copy (bCC)
Send a email to with cc and bcc both
Send a email to with subject
Send a email to with message already started in Body
Send a email to with cc, bcc, a subject
You may use any substitutions and combinations while writing a mailto hyperlink but make sure that there’s only one “?” character. And To add multiple elements, separate the second and subsequent elements with an ampersand (&).
