Is the mailto version correct as described in http://book.pivotx.net/page/app-b#anchor-link ? I cannot get it to work, but the encryption option looks good.

It would help if you posted the exact template code you use so we can verify that you haven't made a typo or misunderstood anything. It works for me ...

Ah, I figured out what I misunderstood. Only the mailto-link is encrypted, not the 'text' - so it is not entirely safe way to use
Code: Select all
[[link mail='info@whatever.com' text='info@whatever.com' encrypt=1]]


There are other ways to do this of course so I am not really in trouble, but it could be a suggestion.

Thanks Hans, feel free to delete this thread.

Why would you want to encrypt the link text?
Quality is in the detail of things............

I would want to show the address so people can read, copy and print the e-mail address. Can also be useful for users of webmail that do not automatically make a new mail when they click on the link.

I would want to encrypt the visual address for the usual reason: so spambots cannot read it.

Not an optimal solution, but you can always right click an e-mail address and copy it.
