I've recently figured out that I can add email links to a SharePoint page. I was wondering if it's possible to add a default subject line or body text?

  • This is so clever, thank you. I am finding though that when you click on the email link, its showing the % signs in the email subject header. Is there anyway to have it so they show as spaces? I can get the subject to show but if I try at the &body= bit, it doesn't like it at all. Could I be doing something wrong, or does Sharepoint just not like it?

Add ?subject= at the end of the mailto link and then add the subject line, replacing spaces with %20. So if you want an email link to go to [email protected] with a subject line that says "this is important", you would format the link as follows:

mailto:[email protected]?subject=this%20is%20important

you can also add body text by appending &body= and following the above formatting.
