    How do I make a email link

    How do I make a email link so site visitors can click it and it opens up a email to be composed  to me

    I wish to make a link on my website that, when clicked, creates an email message to a certain address

     

    Thank You

    Here's the code:

    <a href="mailto:you@yoursite.com?subject=Mail from Our Site">Email Us</a>

    But.... That link will get farmed by spam bots that look for email mailto code to scrape the email address within and your spam will increase.  It is always better to use a form.
