Basic Email Protection
- In the Cascade editor surround a username such as “txjeff” with double square brackets, for example [[txjeff]]. This is converted in your page to the functional email link firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you prefer your email link to be a proper name or phrase enter a comma and the desired link text after the username, for example [[txjeff,Thomas Jefferson]]. This is converted in your page to the functional email link Thomas Jefferson
*Note that Basic Email Protection in VIMS pages converts to an "@vims.edu" address and in Mason pages to an "@mason.wm.edu" address. If you want to be absolutely certain a username is converted into the expected email format, use Advanced Email Protection and one of the prepend rules.
Advanced Email Protection
- To protect an email address that is outside of your site's domain (or is a department or WMApps account) prepend the username with a letter or department identifier and a vertical bar or pipe (|) according to the following rules
Prepend Rule Example w| always converts to W&M email format- email@example.com [[w|txjeff]] converts to firstname.lastname@example.org e| always converts to WMApps email format- email@example.com [[e|txjeff]] converts to firstname.lastname@example.org v| always converts to VIMS email format- email@example.com [[v|txjeff]] converts to firstname.lastname@example.org m| always converts to Mason email format- email@example.com [[m|txjeff]] converts to firstname.lastname@example.org cs| always converts to CS email format- email@example.com [[cs|txjeff]] converts to firstname.lastname@example.org math| always converts to Mathematics email format- email@example.com [[math|txjeff]] converts to firstname.lastname@example.org physics| always converts to Physics email format- email@example.com [[physics|txjeff]] converts to firstname.lastname@example.org
Advanced Email Protection works for linked phrases, too. For example [[m|txjeff,Thomas Jefferson]] will make the text "Thomas Jefferson" an email link to email@example.com like Thomas Jefferson.
