 (Anchor button)

Email
Creates a new email in the default mail app of the user addressed to the email address entered with the link.
(As webmail has increased in popularity the usefulness of this type of link has declined, it only really works for users who are using an application on their device to read mail instead of webmail through a web browser)

File

To link to a file click "Browse Server" and locate a document that you want the link to open.

Link TargetA link can be set to open in different ways when a user clicks it. 

If the link is to another page on your site then we would advise to leave this as not set - to follow default behaviour.
If you are linking to an external site or a document it's best to set this to New Window - so that your users aren't closing down your site to go somewhere else, instead your site stays open in the window and a new one is opened at your link destination.
