Make an image a clickable mailto link

After you've added an image to your email, you can turn it into a clickable link that opens up your contact's email client and pre-fills in your email address when they click on the image.

To make an image a clickable mailto link:

  1. Create or edit an email.
  2. Place your cursor on the block where you want to place the mailto link.
  3. Click on the Edit this block Edit icon in the upper right-hand corner of the block.
  4. Click on the gear Gear Information icon in the upper right-hand corner of the image.
  5. Select Change from the drop-down menu.
  6. Enter your email address to the Make image a clickable link field in the lower left-hand corner of the overlay.
  7. In front of your email address, add "mailto:"

  8. (Optional) Customize the mailto link by adding a CC, BBC, subject line or body content.
  9. Click Insert.
  10. Click the Save Save to continue editing your email. 
To test your image link, click Preview and click on the image. An email window will appear with your email address in the To field. 

Note: Mailto links aren't tracked and don't appear in your reporting.
