Paul Galvin shared a link on twitter earlier this morning that I found pretty valuable. It was one of those things that I had never really thought too much about and if my background was in html I would probably already know about it. It was one of those things that you see and then realize how you could use it. I figured that others might be in the same spot.
The link (http://www.ianr.unl.edu/internet/mailto.html) provides information on additional parameters you can set when you are using mailto:
Here are some of the examples I will be using on our COSPUG site:
Add the Subject Line
- mailto:COSPUG@live.com?subject=Need Information About the COSPUG
Add content to the body
- mailto:COSPUG@live.com?subject=Looking for Partner Information&body=I am interested in partnering with the COSPUG.
A screen shot of the second option is shown below. Maybe Twitter will end up providing value after all
