Calling all custom button experts

 The situation is as follows:


I have created an email template that contain within the body, contact fields i.e. First /  Last Name, Email address, phone, cell etc.


Within the Contact page I have added a Custom button that calls this template, the idea being that a user can email a contacts details to another individual.


The problem is that the URL I am using (see below) is automatically populating the "TO" field with the email address of the contact.{!Contact.Id}&retURL=/{!Contact.Id}&template_id=00X20000001MLZY


Obviously there is no point in emailing the contact his or her own contact details, so users will have to delete / overwrite the contents of the TO field.


Is there a way of leaving the TO field blank, yet populating the relevant details within the body.


In order to set the "To" field to blank you have to use:-

2. But that will not populate the body with necessary contact details.
3. So for that do this set:- p7=={!Contact.FirstName}+'-'+{!Contact.LastName}

Try the following hope this solves your problem:-{!Contact.FirstName}+'-'+{!Contact.LastName}&retURL=/{!Contact.Id}&template_id=00X20000001MLZY



Brilliant, thanks v. much for this.
