How to create a hyperlink that will open a new pre-populated email

Most of the time when you click on a link in a web page, you go to another web page. But occasionally, the link opens a new email pre-populated with an address (and often a subject line and text in the body of the email). Would you like to know how to make those types of links? Read on…

Using whatever software you’re in (Outlook, Word, Excel, etc.), find the option to insert a hyperlink in the document.

Use code below changing text in red (%20 will be expressed as a space):
mailto:insert email address&subject=insert subject line&body=insert body text

email-hyperlink-20170103-1

Example:
mailto:jeneen@domain.com&subject=Question%20about%20PIR&body=I%20have%20a%20question%20about%20the%20PIR.%20http://<domain.com>/sites/<folder>/Home.aspx
Result:
