Can I create a link that opens the recipient's email client with a templated email?

SOLVE

I want to have a link in an email that says "Invite your friend" to subscribe.

I would like that link to act as a "mailto:" with a prefilled subject line and body text that only requires the user to enter the email of their friend and press send.

 

Is that a possibility?

Hi @pahy96,

 

Yes, this is possible and since this type of link follows a simple syntax, you can use pretty much any online generator you find for this, for example: https://mailtolinkgenerator.com/

 

In the marketing email editor, not all link fields accept mail to links with parameters however. After placing such a link in a CTA or as a hyperlink in text, I'd recommend testing thoroughly whether it works.

 

If you're not able to get it to work, try adding it via the source code of the email directly:
