Microsoft Word - Cut Down Email Response Time By Including A Default Subject Line (Word 2000/2002/v. X/2003)

When you include your email address in an electronic document, you can save yourself some email-sorting time by including a default subject line with the hyperlink to your email address. To do so:

  • Select Insert
  • Hyperlink from the menu bar (or press [Ctrl]K) to open the Insert Hyperlink dialog box
  • Select E-mail Address in the Link To area
  • Type your email address in the E-mail Address text box and type the default subject line in the Subject text box
  • In the Text To Display text box, type the text that you want to appear as a hyperlink, and then click OK
  • If you've already created the email address hyperlink and you'd like to add a subject line
  • Right-click on the hyperlink
  • Select Edit Hyperlink from the shortcut menu
  • Fill in the Subject text box and click OK

When the user clicks on your hyperlink, the email message pops up with your email address in the To line and the subject you've specified in the Subject line. Of course, it's important to keep in mind that the user can change the subject line if he desires.
