Web3 profiles allow users to build digital identities under their ENS names or other NFT naming services. However, the users cannot directly communicate with these profiles.
Internet users are familiar with mailto – most of us use it every day. We click an email address on a website and we’re immediately taken to an auto-filled message in our email client. Implementing mailto for Web3 addresses is easy to do and familiar to use, bringing immediate new utility for your users.
Mailto links are used to redirect to an email address instead of a web page URL. Users can send an email to a specific address directly from an HTML document, without having to copy it and enter it into an email client.
The ‘mailto’ feature makes it easy to send a Mailchain message to pre-defined address(es) or create templates. This feature supports pre-filled fields, including cc, bcc, subject and body. When a user clicks the Mailchain ‘mailto’ link, they are taken to the Mailchain app, where a draft message appears. Fields are pre-filled. Then, they can easily review, make any changes and finally, send the message.
Mailchain Address format examples:
[https://app.mailchain.com/mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=We met at EthDenver!](https://app.mailchain.com/mailto:email@example.com?subject=We met at EthDenver!)
