Usage #

Most likely, you want to launch the email client on the phone with certain fields pre-filled.

import 'package:mailto/mailto.dart';
// Optional, but most likely what you want
import 'package:url_launcher/url_launcher.dart';

// Somewhere in your app
launchMailto() async {
  final mailtoLink = Mailto(
    to: [''],
    cc: ['', ''],
    subject: 'mailto example subject',
    body: 'mailto example body',
  // Convert the Mailto instance into a string.
  // Use either Dart's string interpolation
  // or the toString() method.
  await launch('$mailtoLink');

Use url_launcher for launching the links you create with the mailto package.

The package currently does not follow RFC 6068 - The 'mailto' URI Scheme, but it's planned to make sure that the package works well on all platforms and with all email clients.
