In most of the sites, for instance the sites that require the user to contact them, like the shopping sites, or the marketing sites that encourage customer interaction have a hyperlink of their email addresses. When the customer clicks the hyperlink, the default email account which is active opens and up and the user can frame a mail and send it to the site’s contact person. The “To address” is automatically the address of the hyperlink. They are nothing but the usual text of the email address and they are converted using the Mailto protocols to turn into a hyperlink.
