clickable email link
« on: October 08, 2015, 10:04:52 PM »
Hi guys,
I'm setting up signatures for the people in my small business, with the roundcube business email addresses. All I want is for my account email address in the signature to be clickable and open up for someone to send a message to directly. Any help would be very welcome
Nick

Make sure you setup a HTML signatures and are composing HTML signatures. The link the email address in the signature to: mailto:email@example.com replacing  email@example.com with the email address.

Hey thanks for that.
I've done that, but for some reason, when I send a message from roundcube to my hotmail, and click the roundcube signature email link in hotmail, it goes to the webmail sign-in on roundcube...Any thoughts?
Thanks again

Code wise your setup correctly, what do you have you set as your default mail client on your computer? If you have Roundcube setup to be your mail client all mailto: links will open Roundcube up for you to compose the email.

OK, I think we're starting to get there... So I need to setup roundcube as mail client? How do I do that...It won't effect my hotmail..? Will I have to get the others in my work circle to reconfigure as well?
Thanks for all your help so far

Well I'm thinking that Roundcube is currently set as your default main client and thats why the mailto: links are opening it up.

Ok, so it would follow that any other human who is not me, and not at my particular laptop, would open the link and send a message via the mailto: like in a normal situation; so everything is basically fine?
