Hi Gomez,

Thanks for your post. 

Yes, you can do this using a combination of HTML and placeholders we have listed here:

Please note that this does make the ad poster's email address public information, which is why we suggest the contact form. 

Here is the code to make this happen -- I've removed the a characters at the beginning and end so that the forum software won't format this as html:

< href="mailto:$adcontactemail?subject=Ad Response &body=Regarding your ad on entitled : $title"> Contact Me Directly</>

Here is an image so that you know where to put thee missing "a's": RLmklLP.pngImage Enlarger

Here is how that renders in my email program when I click the link:

You can obviously change the text to say whatever you'd like. I hope that helps.
