mailto: can do more than provide a way to send email to you from your site. When used as an <A HREF> tag, one email can be sent to multiple addresses. Not only that, but any combination of those addresses can be tagged as To:(regular), Cc: (carbon copy), or Bcc: (blind carbon copy) addresses. You can also set default text for the Subject: line and the email body! Mailto links can send email to multiple recipients. Add additional email addresses after the first, separated by a comma:

  • example: <a href=” mailto: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]”>

You can select additional email commands as well: Sender is the person who selects the mailto: link Recipient is the person who will receive the mailto: email

  • TO ( same as using comma in the mailto: line) Recipient’s name will appear in the To: line, along with all the other To: addresses. Sender will see all addresses in the To: line. Recipient will see all addresses in the To: line. Can be changed by Sender.
  • CC ( carbon copy) Recipient’s name will be in the Cc: line, along with all the other Cc: addressees. Sender will see all addresses in the Cc: line. Recipient will see all addresses in the Cc: line. Can be changed by Sender.
  • BCC ( blind carbon copy) Recipient’s name will appear in the Bcc: line, along with all the other Bcc: addresses. Sender will see all addresses in the Bcc: line. Recipient will see no addresses in the Bcc: line. Can be changed by Sender.
