html mailto command

Today, due to some task’s requirement, I need to play around with the html mailto command.
As I know, the mailto command is just prompt up the visitor email client & auto fill in the To field.

After some research, I found that actually the mailto command is more power than what I though.

Below is some example:

Simple mail to

<a href="mailto:[email protected]">Simple mail to</a>

Mail to multiple recipients

<a href="mailto:[email protected],[email protected]">Mail to multiple recipients</a>

Mail to with subject

<a href="mailto:[email protected]?subject=Myhow2guru Tutorial">Mail to with subject</a>

Mail to with a copy (CC)

<a href="mailto:[email protected][email protected]">Mail to with a copy (CC)</a>

Mail to with a Blind Copy (BCC)

<a href="mailto:[email protected][email protected]">Mail to with a Blind Copy (BCC)</a>

Mail to with email content

<a href="mailto:[email protected]?body=I like this website">Mail to with email content</a>

    Is there a way to default the e-mail to plain text? As opposed to rich or HTML. Thanks.

    Hi David
    For my understanding, it is not way to do so…
    Unless you are composing the email inside the form & require it send it as plain text format.

    I precisely needed to appreciate you yet again. I’m not certain what I would have undertaken without the type of creative concepts revealed by you about this industry. It was the fearsome circumstance in my opinion, however , being able to see a new well-written approach you dealt with it forced me to leap with gladness. Now i am thankful for the service as well as hope you know what a powerful job that you’re getting into teaching people today by way of your webblog. Most probably you haven’t come across all of us.
