How to insert or update an email link on a page?

  1. If you are enteing a new email link, type the text for the email link in the place on the page where you want it to be located. This text could be "John Smith's email address” or myemail@mcmaster.ca”. This text is for display only.  It can be the email address or it can be something else. It is not the actual email address.
