Linking to a Preaddressed Email Message

You can add a hyperlink that you can click to create a preaddressed email message in
your default mail application.

To add hypertext that links to an email message:


Select the text that you want to turn into a hyperlink.

If you include an email address in a document, the text automatically becomes a
hyperlink. To turn off this feature, choose Pages > Preferences, click Auto-Correction,
and then deselect “Automatically detect email and web addresses.” This setting is
computer specific, so if the document is opened on a computer with a different
setting, that computer’s setting is used instead.


Click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Link button, click Hyperlink, and then select

“Enable as a hyperlink.”


Choose Email Message from the Link To pop-up menu.


Type the email address of the intended recipient in the To field.


Optionally type a subject line in the Subject field.

Type the email address of
the message recipient.

Type the message subject.

You can also quickly create a hyperlink using the Insert menu. Place an insertion point
somewhere in your document, and choose Insert > Hyperlink > Email Message. A link
is added to your document and the Link inspector opens. Type type the email address
in the To field.
