Inserts <a href=""> | </a>
Replaces email address

How to use it: This inserts an email link to an address you specify. When you press this button, the Search / Replace dialog comes up. Please read the Replace section above for information on how to use this feature. In this case, you are to enter your email address in the Replace with: field, and as always, the Search For: field will contain the word "replace".

This button is most useful when used to contain a previously inserted element such as an image. That is, if you have an image on the page that you wish to link to an e-mail address, first select it and then press the Mailto button.  The link will be created surrounding the image selected.

Note: do not confuse this with the Email button on the Stationery/Scripts Toolbar as the two have quite different functions.


Presumably you know your own email address, and if you use this feature a lot you may get annoyed having to use the Replace feature everytime.  Wouldn't it be easier if it just knew your address?  You're right - it would. 

If you wish, you can alter this button to accomplish that.

The code for this option looks like this:  <a href="mailto:replace"> | </a> [Replace].   To set it to always enter your address, simply change the mailto:replace section with your actual address. For example:  Also be sure to remove the [Replace] section at the end.

Please see the Customizing section for information on where to actually accomplish this change and how to make it permanent.
