mailto

Christopher Yeleighton

Revision KDE 4.8 (2012-01-28)

The kioslave mailto is responsible for launching the mail composer of your choice when you open a URL in the mailto scheme (RFC6068).

Syntax

The syntax of a mailto URL follows the following pattern:

mailto:recipients?query

where recipients form a list of restricted SMTP address specifications, and the query part may contain one or more of the following parameters:

&to=recipients

Specifies additional recipients.

&cc=recipients

Specifies additional recipients of carbon copies.

&bcc=recipients

Specifies additional recipients of blind carbon copies. These recipients will receive the message, but all other recipients will not know about that.

&body=text

Specifies the text of the message. This text should not be long, as there may be hard limits on how long an URL may be.

&subject=text

Specifies the subject of the message.

Example

mailto:info@kde.org?cc=kde@kde.org&subject=Thank%20you!&body=KDE%20rocks!%20How%20can%20I%20help%3F

Configuration
