    This is what the blurb looks like on my contact form and I'd like the email address to work when someone clicks on it, if possible.

    Text box blurb:

    I would love to hear from you! If you have any questions concerning any of my work, availability, or just simply want to give a shout out, please use the form below. Alternately, you can email me at patch@gmail.com. Thanks

     

    Thanks!

    Hello patchj,

    I am not sure if I understood your question correctly. Do you want to make the email address clickable in your form?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. You can use "mailto:" to create a hyperlink in the email address. Once someone clicks on this hyperlink, the default email client of that computer will load to send emails to that email address. Please check the screenshot below on how to add the "mailto:":

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!

    One more thing please. In regards to this hyperlink I've just setup. I noticed that the email address is now permanently underlined. Can the underline be removed?

    Thanks
