Hey all I have searched high and low for this info but can't find it on the forums.
How do I do these two things?

I want to add buttons for my site for AIM, MSN

I have seen this done with buttons you just click on it and its adds you to their contact list.

Also wanted to add a mailto button. Like a gmail button.

I have been fooling around with some different code I have found but it wont work for me.

Thanks all in advance

An email thing would go:

<a href="mailto:someaddy@gmail.com">Email me!</a>

and AIM would go:

<a href="aim:goim?screenname=yoursnhere&message=Put+a+default+message+here">AIM  me!</a>

This makes the person message you, with whatever you put as a default message (+s between the words!)
...as for MSN, I don't think it can be done. I think it can be done on YM, but I'm not sure how, I can check if you want it though. :D
