Email is consistently one of our most popular sharing services.
When your website visitors click our email share button, they are taken to a form to fill out before the email can be sent. Our implementation allows you to auto-fill the fields in this form for your users, which they can change if they would like to.
In order for emails to be sent, you need to have a valid profile ID set on the page, and the note field must not have any HTML or URLs in it. The URL will be added automatically by our email system.
How to Customize the Email Interface
You can adjust the default “to” address, “from” address, and the email note using these addthis_config properties, or by setting an Email Template in your AddThis dashboard.
This will set the default “to” address. Users will be able to change it.
This will set the default “from” address. Users will be able to change it.
Note: Due to our spam prevention policy, the email will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org, which is not changeable. The email address set in the “from” field will be set as the “reply to” email to ensure any replies are properly received.
This will set the note field in the email interface. Be aware that any HTML or URLs in this field will cause the email not to send. The URL will be added automatically by our email system.
In the email inbox, the “note” will appear as the body of the email.
Opting Out of Email
You can opt out of receiving and sending emails using AddThis by using this form: https://www.addthis.com/privacy/email-opt-out. If you wish to opt back in send an email to email@example.com and an AddThis team member will opt you back in.
