    Hello,
    I would like to use the mailbutton, but unfortunately I dont know how to fill in the form. Why is there an url code before typing your mailadress? Maybe it works only with outlook or a certain software. Anyway whatever I do it doesnt work.
    Please instruct me about the correct way.
    Thanks,
    Judit

    @jasz I put this link for my email url mailto:someone@example.com (replace someone@example.com with ur info) and it works fine, when people click the button, it will open up their desktop email client to email you.

    Sorry I dont get it. It says that the e-mail client has not installed yet. I tryed with more adresses and it just doesnt work....Could you send me the exact tekst what you have to fill in?

    You might see that message because you dont have an email client installed. You use gmail right. So that is browser email, not desktop.

    Just put your email address where it says someone@gmail.com

    mailto:YOURGMAILEMAIL.COM

    That's it. When OTHER people click it, it will open up their email client and they will be able to email you.
