How to create a pre-populated email address link.

How to create a pre-populated email address link.

Creating a mailto link within your Constant Contact newsletter that has a pre-populated subject line is a great way to keep track of responses and make your business look more professional. When your recipient clicks to send you an email, the subject line will show pre-populated in the email. Once they send the email, you can create a rule in Outlook or Gmail to move all responses from your Constant Contact email to one folder within your Outlook/Gmail account.




To include a customized subject line and body within your email: 


  1. Add an email link in your email.
  2. After you type the email address you want to link to, click the "More options" link located at the bottom right of the Email Address field.
  3. Type in the text you want to display in the Subject and Body field.
  4. Click Insert.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Click the Preview button located on the top-right.
  7. Click the email link and an email window will appear with the email address, subject line, and body that you added.
