This is close but the address does not autofill. Also, if you are not logged in, it will not forward you to the compose page once you complete login.

Still not working in version 8125. 

Feature request : add possibility to assign SmarterMail website as default email handler on browser set as default mail program on any OS using mailto URL scheme.

This feature should have more Up vote for it, but not many tech know this is a possibility now.

Now all major browser offer the possibility to be assign as default Mail program. Inside those browser, you can specify with website is assign by default to respond to MailTo request.

This is done by using navigator.registerProtocolHandler function :
See in developer.mozilla.org and search for the function.
Exemple use :
navigator.registerProtocolHandler("mailto", webmail.domaine.com/interface/root#/popout/email/?to=%s", "SmarterMail client")

Parameters available in RFC 2368

mailto:mail@example.com?subject=test&body=body test.&attach=path-to-local-file

All the following mail client accept the attach=path-to-file

    The Bat!
    eM Client
    IBM Notes
    Apple Mail
    iOS Mail App
    K-9 Mail

More and more client are asking us if there is a way to use SmarterMail directly instead of installing email client's software locally on computer because they use only SmarterMail in webbrowser.

Thanks for taking this feature into consideration!
