Add possibility to assign SmarterMail website as default email handler on browser set as default mail program on any OS using mailto URL scheme
Idea shared by Remi Heppell - 6/9/2022 at 12:36 PM
Under Consideration
Now all major browser offer the possibility to be assign as default Mail program. Inside those browser, you can specify witch website is assigned 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

Hi Remi,

A +1 from me too! Thanks for the suggestion. I went ahead and created a ticket on this so we can get the request escalated to our product management team for consideration.
Hi Emily

I would like this feature too. I even created a ticket (3CB-26EB6B98-0B05) about two years ago, but had no success.
We have people who use outlook (they can't stand thunderbird, lesigh) specifically because of this. This would be wonderful--We could cut more from our yearly costs.
I thought, years ago, like Smartermail 12 or 13, that this worked ?  I seem to remember at one point clicking on "mailto" links and smartermail would pop open ? But i am talking like 10 - 15 years ago. did it ?
