Hello,

I noticed that this post was a bit outdated so I just wanted to update you all.

We have made it easier to link to emails now.

To link text:
1. Bring in a text element
2. Edit the text as you wish
3. Highlight the text you want to link
4. Click on the link icon in the table directly above the text box
5. Choose e-mail from the dropdown list
6. Set up your email settings
7. Choose your paragraph style for the link
8. save!

To link an image:

1. Bring in a text element
2. Place cursor at begining of paragraph
3. Click image icon in table directly above text box
4. Upload your image, and set the size
5. Highlight the image (just like text)
6. Click on the link icon in the table directly above the text box
7. Choose e-mail from the dropdown list
8. Set up your email settings
9. Choose your paragraph style for the link
10. save!

Hope this helps!

    Hi Amelie!

    Thanks for the Q!

    This is possible but in two formats- in widgets or menu elements.
    Using a widget is very simple:
    1. Drag a widget element onto the canvas
    2. Switch it to “HTML”
    3. Paste this code using your email:
    <html>
    <a href="mailto:someone@example.com?Subject=Hello%20There" target="_top">
    Send Mail</a>
    </html>

    -------------

    Using a menu element if you’d like to edit the links design.

    To create a Mailto: link
    1) Go To pages menu
    2) Create a new menu
    3) Create "New Link" (NOT a new page)
    4) Insert your email address into the Title Name
    5) Select Link Type - External Link
    6) In the Page Name section, remove/delete the "http://&quot;
    7) In the Page Name section, paste mailto:someone@example.com (using your mail)
    8) Save & Exit Pages Menu
    9) Drag a Menu Tool onto the canvas
    10) In the Toolbar, change the "Select Menu" field to Menu 1 (or whatever you named your new menu)
