E-mail Links

Web Editing Tips

  • E-mail links must always be manually activated when they are created.
  • When editing an existing e-mail address, change both the text and the link.

The process of adding an e-mail link within your Web content is very similar to adding a link to an external website.

For the website user, clicking on this link will open a new e-mail message addressed to a specific recipient.

How to Add an E-Mail Link

  1. While in the edit mode, select the text that will become the hyperlink.
    • Remember, e-mail address links must always be fully revealed, such as web-team@iup.edu.
  2. Click the Insert Link icon (Insert Link icon) on the toolbar. The link toolbar will appear (see below). Link toolbar
  3. Change "http://" to "mailto:" (without the quote marks, but with the colon—see below). Link toolbar with e-mail protocol
  4. Type or paste the e-mail address directly after mailto: Do not leave a space between the two.
  5. Click away from the toolbar, and the e-mail link will now be in place.
