    Question How do you format an email link in a Web APP for BB?

    Advertisement



    Hello,
    I'm in the process of creating email links in a web application formatted for the BB browser. One of the links, has a "mailto:" link in it to send email to a user or group of users. Currently, when I click on this link in the BB browser, it defaults to a PIN message. How do I format the link on the web page to bring up an Email template, instead of a PIN message template on the BB?

    Any ideas and insight would be greatly appreciated.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    What are you putting in as the "recipient part" after the mailto: ?
    If you put in a phonenumber@someformofblackberrydomain.com, then It will "format" for a pin number (I think, not sure tho)
    Give an example, please.
    Ill try a few.....
    Don't know if it works via quick post, but we'll see.

    Mailto:francisx@hotmail.com

    Mailto:FrancisX@mycingular.blackberry.net

    Mailto:9737277208@verizon.net

    Welp, it defaults to "email" on my Blackberry on those links, so I would guess, that the Blackberry that you are using to test it, either doesn't have email setup on it or, you are not putting in the "@" symbol in the email address after the mailto:

    I found the answer in a BB developer guide to WML here:

    chrism2202, Welcome to PinStack, Glad you got it working.

    sangesf, I would be very careful about posting my Blackberry Email address (If that is a real address) on the Net. It's a real good way to start getting SPAM on your BB.
