embedding an email link into a post

  1. How do I put a live email link into a post, so that when a reader clicks on it, it opens their email and puts the address automatically into their To line and a Subject into their Subject line?

    The blog I need help with is queenofretreats.com.

  2. See here:

    But this is a gift to spam bots. Better use the WP contact form instead:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/

  3. thanks - but i can't see here where it tells me how to put an email address inside a post?

    For example, I want to say... Contact BLA BLA - and the live link from BLA BLA opens the email...

  4. As pointed out if you provide an active email link then you are providing spammers with exactly what they need. The main link to all support documentation is http://en.support.wordpress.com and that link is found at the bottom of your Admin page on your blog. The searchbox rpovides results from both the support documentation and from forum threads.
    example: links @
    results: http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/
    BINGO! http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/#links-containing-the-at-sign-symbol

  5. I have not found what I want by searching the forums, which is why I am posting this question. I am aware about the spam problem - even so, will you or someone else please explain - How do I put a live email link into a post, so that when a reader clicks on it, it opens their email and puts the address automatically into their To line and a Subject into their Subject line?

    the Editor converted things - if you can't click on the link given you above this code should work
