Adding an email link in the signature

This post is also available in: Português

A lot of people doubt if they should add their email address to the signature. After all, the recipient will see their address when opening the message. There is no rule; it is more a personal choice.

If you’d like to add an email address to your email signature, it would be great to add a clickable link to automatically compose a new message in the default email client on your computer or phone.

This avoids the need to copy and paste the email address when composing a new message.

If you’d like a quick tutorial, watch the video at the end of this article.

Unlike when you link to a site with http: or https: the link to open a new email message composer should start with mailto:

Please take a look at this example:

mailto:email@your-business.com

See the example pop-up in the URL field, created with the editor.

Once you create a link with this text, the standard email client of your recipient will automatically open their message composer.
