mail to link in sharepoint online


Good Day


We had business users trying to add in their communication sites in the navigation menu (so it shows up in the mega menu) a URL link that is actually a link to an email address.  It is the standard link.  It looks though this is not a supported format/link type that we can use within the navigation of the communication site.  We tried also leveraging the footer as it would be a good place to display the email address of who to reach out/contact with questions but we had the same unsuccessful experience as with the mega menu.  Does someone know if this adding a mailto link to the navigation is really unsupported and if so what other options do we have (other than creating a page with a text web part where we can add the mailto link).  Thanks!

Yeah they really need to add support for other links. In the meantime thou use a url shortener like or tiny url. I wrote a blog awhile back about this very thing :
