Simple mailto command tip

Here is a really simple way of embedding an email link into any HTML page.

First we start with just a simple email link:

<A HREF="mailto:someone@somewhere.com">EMAIL ME</A>
This will put a simple email link in a website that will open and address an email to you.

Second method we will add a subject to your email link:

<A HREF="mailto:someone@somewhere.com?subject=This is a great website">EMAIL ME</A>
This will put a simple email link in a website that will open and address an email to you that will have a a subject of "This is a great website".

And lastly, a complete email with email address, subject and a message body:

<A HREF="mailto:someone@somewhere.com?subject=This is a great website&body=Hi, I found this website and thought you might like it http://randykisch.blogger.com/">tell a friend</A>
This will put a simple email link in a website that will open and address an email to you that will have a a subject of "This is a great website" and have a message body that says "Hi, I found this website and thought you might like it http://randykisch.blogger.com/".
