this is paramount to spam. That is obtrusive behavior. Not to mention that it could be abused, so most email clients block this kind of behavior.

No need to attack! It was actually a request for an email that is sent from my work to an email database that people want to be on. They receive important information about current information that they need to be aware of, and the page in question has a search engine so they can search to see if the information is still correct or has been amended etc etc. They have asked for us to provide an easier way for them to reach a specific page on our website, so hence my first question.

ah... should have included that in your first post.

1)once the user reaches the site, then can add it to their list of favorites
2)if active directory is used onsite, then you can create a policy to add it to their favorites.
3)on said website, you can include code (button) to add to favorites.
3)as stated before, due to spam and malware, most email clients blocks this kind of activity. Best thing to do is link them to the website and let them do the adding to favorites from there.
