Client says Contact Page isn't working (it is), wondering how to get email to pop up?

He wants just his email address instead of the contact page. So I’m wondering how to get a new ‘compose email’ to pop up when you click on an email address in a web page? Is this something RW can do? I have RW5 but can migrate to RW6 if needed. Thanks

Yes you could use something like:

<a href="mailto:aaa@aaa.com">aaa@aaa.com</a>

This will open the client’s email client so that he can send the email.
Is this what you need?

You don’t need to use HTML, either: if you highlight some text, click “Add Link” and enter an email address in the Add Link sheet that appears, RapidWeaver will generate the code for you :smile:

Also to protect your email it is a good thing to use this app from Gary:

Thanks to all for your suggestions. Just did the link as nikf suggested and it seems fine. Of course there are so many mail app’s out there I told the client I couldn’t be 100% sure it worked on everything. But he’s ok, for now. Can’t wait until he tells me he’s still not getting some email. Again, really appreciate your help.
