I have been trying to find ways to set up webmail as my default mail client on windows 7.
First the mailto links on webpages would state no mail client is installed on my computer. I needed the mailto link to open Smartermail webmail. I found this workaround editing the registry:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="rundll32.exe url.dll,FileProtocolHandler h t t p : //mail. malnorcreative.co.za /Main/frmCompose.aspx?to=?&popup=true"
There are no spaces in the http, only there because I am not allowed to post hyperlinks
I created a web mail.reg file, put the above info in it and ran the file. It populated the registry and now if I click a mailto link it opens a Smartermail compose page.
There are still some issues with this workaround
1. it does not populate the to field in the new message window, I don't know how to do that,
2. if I am not logged in to Smartermail, it will open a broken message window.
If you know of a workaround or the right attributes to put into the link above that would be appreciated.
The other main problem I have iss when I want to sent a Microsoft word or pdf document from within these applications it says no mail client is installed. This is frustrating because I only use Smartermail web client for my mails. How can I edit the registry so that these programmes will open with smarter mail web client. I know I can save and attach the files, but this is not what I want, lets just say it is not ideal. I do not want to intsall thunderburd or windows live etc as a seperate mail software.
Can anyone assist with this problem.
