email link

I'm not able to figure out how to link t an email address. On my CONTACT page I have my email, but can I make it so a visitor can just click on it and start an email?
Thank you

Re: email link

The format is:
< a href="mailto:someone@example.com" > email link < /a >

Remove spaces when using.

mailto links aren't a very good idea as they expose your email address to harvesting by spammers. Email forms aren't perfect but you will end up with a hundred times more spam if you use a mailto.

The other disadvantage of a mailto is that it isn't designed to work with webmail and while some browsers will startup Gmail that isn't universal.
