My first post on the forum, I'm trying to create a mailto: that goes through to email addresses from a data extension.
I've tried -
href="mailto:%%=v(@consultantemailaddress)=%%" - but this unsurprisingly doesn't work.
I've tried concat also -
%%=RedirectTo(Concat(mailto:%%v=(@consultantemailaddress)=%%))=%% - again no luck and shows this error at the back end:
ExactTarget.OMM.InvalidFunctionException: The function call uses an unrecognized function name.
"Function Name: mailto:%%=v Function Call: mailto:%%=v(@consultantemailaddress) Error Code: OMM_FUNC_INVALID - from OMMCommon"
So after speaking to support I tried printing mailto as a variable but again no luck,
%%[ VAR @Cemailaddress, @mailto SET @consultantemailaddress = Lookup("DE_CDetails", "CEmailAddress", "CID", @cID) SET @mailto = "Mailto:" ]%% <a name="c-repemail" href="%%=RedirectTo(Concat("@mailto","@cemailaddress"))=%%">link</a>
If anyone could point me the right direction with this it would be great, what is the best way to concat variables/links?
