mailto:[email protected]?subject=Thank You For Getting In Touch


mailto:[email protected]?subject=Thank%20You%20For%20Getting%20In%20Touch

Note: Spaces between the words of the Subject will probably be okay, but in some cases, it may not work well. The safest way to handle that is to replace the spaces with %20.
