I’m on Linux and use Thunderbird for my email
I would like to be able to click on an email to invoke the email program but the two things I’ve tried
both of these just create pages
If I do [[mailto:johndoe…][John Doe]] clicking on John Doe fires up Thunderbird but uses //john.doe@… which doesn’t work.
What am I missing?
All the best,
You just insert a normal link using
Then fill in the inputs like this:
Or you can just type out a markdown link:
It makes no difference what you put in between the
[ ] brackets, i.e.
[Email Someone](mailto:email@example.com) will give you Email Someone
Thanks for the explanation Brad, unfortunately that doesn’t work on my system
If I use the following link [[mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org][john doe]] it sends //email@example.com to my email program. The same thing happens when I type in the link manually, use ctrl-L or /Link
As you’ve probably spotted, I’m using the org mode variant of the editor which may be where the problem lies.
What you can try is creating a new markdown file in your pages folder(you can have both markdown and orgmode files in one graph), and using a markdown link as previously suggested:
[Email Someone](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) if that works then there is a bug in the org-mode parser, and that should be reported on Github. Otherwise it’s a bug in your setup: some notes on mailto links
Thanks, I’ll try that out and let you know.
I didn’t realise you could intermingle org and markdown files in the same graph.
I did that and the markdown version works fine. I’ve reported it on Github.
