Mailto:RapidWeaver.com

Allowing a visitor to easily contact you via email is simple enough using an HTML link: mailto:[email protected] The link can, of course be enhanced by pre-entering a subject and dummy content, e.g.: mailto:[email protected]?subject=Contact via my page&body=Just testing">Contact Me!

This works just fine. A new mail is created with the user's mail application and is pre-populated with your subject and dummy content; except that many users are confused by what they see and don't know quite how to continue.

Gary at Doobox has just helped to enlighten those inexperienced users by creating a simple Mailto stack which presents your visitor with a simple form into which your visitor can enter the details that you require. When your user then clicks 'Send', a mail is created with their onboard mail application; the mail can then be reviewed and, when they are satisfied with the content, she/he can just click send.

The advantage of Mailto stack is that you can add up to four different prompted fields for your visitor to fill, before they create their mail E.G.

Mailto – DooboxName
Telephone
Subject
Message
Then, as already mentioned, your visitor can then review their entries before finally sending off their mail.
Makes things a lot more logical than editing some dummy text.

And: the Mailto stack also has the advantages that you won't need to look for the specific 'Mailto' syntax every time you need it and, being based on standard HTML syntax, you won't need to convert your page to PHP.
