How to set up Mailto: URL option for emails?
I am trying to send emails through via the mailto: URL, does anyone know how I can put that setting/option on, or set my computer up some way that I can? I am in dire need of any help on this matter. Much appreciated!

If you already have an email account like Yahoo Mail or Gmail added to an desktop
application such as Thunderbird then you just click on the mailto: link.
This will then open the email address in Thunderbird where a message can be composed.
I don't know what browser your using,but in Firefox mailto: links can be handled
a number of ways:
1. Always ask → a prompt box opens to choose which option you want.
2. Use Mail (default) → this would use the default app such as Thunderbird.
3. Use Gmail → this will open gmail login page.
4. Use Yahoo! Mail → this will open yahoo mail login page.
Another option is to right click on the mailto: link and select copy email address.
Then login to your email address and paste email in the To: field
Hope this was a help to you.
