[CodeReviewer] Add new mail URL to "Launch Application" popup in review window

Hi,

We currently use webmail for our internal communications. We do not have any mail applications installed on the desktop.

Is there a way to add my mailserver url to the list of websites available for e-mail?



Regards,

Karl

  • I am not sure what you mean by "popup in review window" but I assume you are looking for changng "mailto:" links in your broswer from opening mail.app to open you mail server URL. If so then the following steps work with chrome and Firefox (not sure about IE) 




    1- Open mail server url in Chrome.


    2- Press Ctrl+Shift+J (Windows) or Cmd+Opt+J (Mac) to open Chrome's built-in JavaScript console.


    3- Paste the following into the console and press Enter:


    navigator.registerProtocolHandler("mailto",


                                      "https://mail.google.com/mail/?extsrc=mailto&url=%s",


                                      "Gmail");


    4- Chrome will prompt you, asking if you'd like to "Allow Gmail (mail.google.com) to open all email links?" Click the Use Gmail button.


    5- 


     


    Note: Firefox you can go to options/applications/mailto and set it for GMail (or others)
