Currently in Confluence, while it is possible to link to a mail message, the method is a little cumbersome.

(info) You need to edit in 'Wiki Markup' mode to create a link to an email.

To link to an email,

  1. Go to the 'Browse Space' view.

    Go to the 'Browse Space' view. There are two ways to browse a space:

    • Go to a page in the space and select the option you want from the 'Browse' menu. The corresponding tab of the 'Browse Space' view will open.
    • Or click the icon next to the space name on the Dashboard. The 'Pages' tab of the 'Browse Space' view will open.

  2. Go to the 'Mail' tab. The mail is displayed in reverse chronological order with a default of 30 email messages per page. Move between pages to locate the message you want to link to.
  3. Click on the mail message. You will notice in the address bar of your browser that the URL displayed ends in a series of numerals.
  4. Copy only the numerals.
  5. Click on the 'edit' tab of the page from which you want to link to the message.
  6. Paste the numerals between square brackets (as you would when you create any link in Confluence), and then include the dollar sign '$' in front of the numerals.

Here's an example:

Clicking on the link will open up the mail message.
