Select the "Chain Link" button from the Adobe left toolbar.
Now right mouse click-hold-drag-and release in an area within the Adobe form area, to create a link area.

1) Creating a Internet Web Link

In the "Edit URL" entry area (see Fig 1.2) instead of typing an Internet address (i.e. http://www.anywhere.com) type (see Fig 1.2): mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org When the link is clicked it will activate users e-mail software and enter the address automatically in a new e-mail message. Click "OK", and you are finished.
3) Additional Pre-addresses E-mail Message Options
In addition to just the Recipient's e-mail address you can also add a Subject: mailto:email@example.com?Subject=Subject If you want to add spaces, you will need to put the characters '%20' in every time: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?Subject=Subject%20Field%20Is%20This%20One You take it one step further and also add a small Body Message: mailto:email@example.com?Subject=My%20Subject?Body=Message%20body (%0A will insert a Carriage Return for you)
