I have a "sales team" page on my website. On that page I have listed contact information for each salesperson including their email addresses. Is there a way for me to create a link by clicking on the email address so that it directs them to their own inbox to create new message with the contact prefilled with whatever email address they clicked on from our website? I have a link created, but when we click on it, it opens a new window with the email addresses where the website should be.

Hi Dave, just highlight the email address and then on the right side, click Link. There is an option for "email address" You need to enter the email address in that box.

Keep in mind that the site visitor must have a default mail program installed and selected in Windows. There is no way around that, so the link will not work for anyone that does not have a default mail program, but they will still see the address and be able to type it into a message.
