Solution 1 :

I’m not sure why a mailto wouldn’t work for a distro list, but if it is a not a huge list you can try adding Carbon Copies for everyone on the list to the mailto

Problem :

I’m trying to create an HTML link that will send an email via mailto to an email distribution list. It seems when I click the link, I get a blank page and then nothing happens. My mail app doesn’t pop-up.

My HTML is correct as when I replace the email distribution list ([email protected]) with my personal email (person[email protected]), my mail app registers this activity and pops-up.

I’m not too familiar with the rules of mailto to an email distribution list vs. an email address, or if there are any. Is there a way to set up an email distribution list so that others can’t “mailto” them?

Thanks in advance for any advice or insight.

What program are you trying to use? What operating system?

Are you using one email address that forwards to your distribution list? Or are you listing multiple addresses in your “mailto”?
