How do I add an email link? I want to create a link that if clicked on, it opens the client‘s email application

Templates & Editor Updated on February 26, 2009
To create an email link in your email or newsletter, follow these steps:
  1. Go to the block where you wish to put the email link. Click on the EDIT icon .
  2. In the toolbar, click on the Insert Link icon.
  3. Instead of a Web address, type in the email address you want to use, using this format: mailto:name@domain instead of a URL. Click on UPDATE.
  4. Click on SAVE in the block where you want the email link to sit.
  5. Click on PREVIEW. When you click on the email link, the default email client should open with the pre-filled To field featuring the email address you specified.
Note: Benchmark Email does not track email links so these will not show up in your reports.
