Can not include CC's in E-mail link to pre-filled Email

0 Votes

I am attempting to create a link to an e-mail that would prefill to multiple e-mail addresses and include a subject line as well as the body of the email. When I follow the instructions for the HTML inclusion of CC's to add the additional addresses (or use a generator that includes cc's) the Constant Contact line for address gives me an error message to enter a valid e-mail address. I even cut and pasted a link from an old Constant Contact campaign that worked in the old campaign but will not be accepted in the address line when I attempt to edit the e-mail link in the newly created campaign e-mail link.

Hello @SNCA ,


There is currently an issue when coding in CC'd and BCC'd addresses for the Mailto: link. I've tracked the issue to your account, and you'll be notified of any updates by the devs if and when they have them.


In the meantime, the only viable workaround I can recommend is to not include a CC or BCC element in your mailto: link.

Is this fixed yet? I can't add CC's either.


I would also like an update to this issue. This is a real downside to Constant Contact for my organization and our subscription. Considering dropping CC for a service that allows more flexibility with the "Mailto" tool.
