How to open outlook from an email Link

How to open outlook from an email Link

  

Hi,

I'm trying to use A link on my web app to open outlook and populate the TO: with the email address on the link 

Solution

Hello Imraan,

Use "mailto:email" in the href (destination URL). It will open the configured mail client. If it is Outlook, it will open it.

This is not an OutSystems related question, by the way.

Cheers.

Thanks that did work and it is an outsystems related question because i was not sure if outsystems had an action to perform this out the box  


Hi Imraan,

Adding to what Eduardo explained: you will need to use External URL as the Destination for your Link, so that the URL attribute shows up and you can pass it the value: 

"mailto:" + EmailAddress

This will open the default email client of the user, with the TO: field filled in with the email address provided.
