MATTS TIPS: COOL EMAIL TIPS

Well I know that I usually only talk about sourcetips.com or family matters, but I am living up to my title as a Computer Tip Professional.

This tip is for the Novice users who want there website to have a cool tip.

Ok, lets say you go to a website that has an Email Link, its usually something like EMAIL ME, Well my tip will spice this up a bit.

First off, lets say you get frequent emails. Similar to me. And you have little contests or whatever and you want to know if these people are submitting for this instead of bull crap emails. Well, you'd probably want them to put in the subject something like "Contest entry" but what if they forget. Heres how to make it say that without putting it.

1st. when you link your email, do this mailto:youremail@yourdomain.com?subject=Contest (changable). this will put the subject as Contest.

The only thing it may not work for is if you use Yahoo Mail as your default mail client. Its best to use a POP3 client to test it. Its no good if you use webmail.

2nd. Picture this, you want your website referred. But its cheasy to say "Refer me to your friends & Family!

Heres a better way to do it. On the mailto: line type this mailto:?body= Check out this site! http://yourdomain.com/! This will give the clicker the option to type in who he wants to send, and then he won't need to type in a body referral message.

BUT WAIT,HOW DO I KEEP IT TO WHERE MY FRIENDS DON'T SEE MY COOL CODE?
I suggest making a flash text or button, because this is the only way that it won't show up on the status bar. You could also put up a scrolling text down there but if they were smart they could go fast and read it..

ENOUGH,
