Open mailto: links with your favorite online email service

Image from store Mailto:
Description from store It makes mailto: links open in an online email service (webmail services). Currently it supports AOL mail, Fastmail, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo mail and Zoho mail by default. You can also set multiple different email services yourself. Compared to the other mailto extensions, this one can handle a lot more mailto links. Try out http://shadow2531.com/opera/testcases/mailto/rfc2368-3.html for example (as far as supported by the email client of course). Also forms and javascript-inserted links are supported! You can also choose to add an option to the context menu, to send the address of the page with your chosen email service. Furthermore, you can exclude certain web pages from this extension.

  • (2019-12-29) C Neu: Schrott! Ich hab jetzt eine ganze Stunde verzweifelt gesucht, aber ich kann immer nur irgendwelche Websites eintragen. Egal was ich mache: Thunderbird startet nicht und weit und breit nirgendwo eine Anleitung verfügbar. Es ist zum heulen.....!
  • (2019-12-18) nergui hun: Yeah, doesn't work fully, only brings up the Home page of Outlook.com, not the Compose page. Maybe the URL needs to be changed?
  • (2019-11-04) Michel Basilieres: doesn't work. Opens the web app, that's it.
  • (2019-07-15) Manu Bermudez: Funciona perfectamente. Lo he utilizado para que los Mailto me abra el Gmail, y funciona a la perfección.
  • (2019-05-29) Fakhreddine Yousfi: Fonctionne très bien il faut un petit tuto pour expliquer qu'il faut changer changer le lien des services par https://mail.google.com/mail/?view=cm&tf=1&to={to}&cc={cc}&bcc={bcc}&su={subject}&body={body}
  • (2019-05-26) Cyrus Cyrus: Add icloud mail please
  • (2019-04-23) Harvest Johns: I'm going to give it a week since the first seventeen tries didn't work. But, currently, the thing operates exactly as described. I'm using this extension to open OWA, the browser based program for Outlook, for work. I had to use the custom option and use the link: https://outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/mail/action/compose&to=lfkelley%40troy.edu&subject=&body=&cc=&bcc= which worked fine. If it keeps working after a week, I'll come back and update the review.
  • (2019-04-22) Jesse O'Sullivan: literally doesnt work
  • (2019-02-20) Hassan AlRayes: I have gotten more requests to donate than the times It was useful
  • (2019-02-11) ZaCloud StriFair: Doesn't work with Hotmail/Live Mail. Many browser resets later and no change. I'm on Windows 8.1.
  • (2019-02-09) James Utting: This used to work fine for outlook.com webmail. But has stopped working for some reason, now it opens outlook.com but simply takes you to your Inbox, The Drafts section still has to be opened an email has to be created in the normal manner. Refreshing the tab as suggest in a previous response did not help at all.
  • (2018-11-01) Mark: Works great! To the creators, please include Office365 as additional option in list... as per other comment above... Office365.com -> https://outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/mail/action/compose&to={to}&subject={subject}&body={body}&cc={cc}&bcc={bcc}
  • (2018-09-15) Bart 2: Added to Chrome for Yahoo! mail. Quite simply, it works. Then something happened. Sometime between May 3, 2015 and Sept 15, 2018 something has changed that fundamentally affects how this and any other mailto app works in Windows 10. Today I tried not only this app but every Gmail mailto app and non of them works under Windows 10. The developer's web site has many comments to this and it appears something has happened to the developer or he has abandoned his project. In any case, until the app is updated to work with the current version of Windows, it is pretty much useless.
  • (2018-07-21) Sameer C: works now check solution in support site issue 71 thanks
  • (2018-06-13) Mads Nygaard: The extension does not pick up when changing the default mail app pattern to an alternative via "Add another service". Tried using Tutanota (https://mail.tutanota.com). The new path can be added but even if chosen via the radio bottom it never actually sets the new service as default. Useless.
  • (2018-05-18) Skip In Perth: "mail this pages url" took about 30secs to load compose page when using hotmail / outlook webmail (outlook.live.com). mailto link worked but also slow. I had to change URI (see issue 71 comments on support site)
  • (2018-03-24) Matsuko Friedland: Using this to open in Gmail and seems to work well. I had tried 2 other extensions before that didn't work or didn't work well. The only thing I'd like is for the email I'm sending it from to be visible, like the inbox view or something. Not sure if that's possible, though.
  • (2018-03-21) Arto Aalto: I was fighting for hours to get mailto links to work on my Win7 Chrome. I tried several extensions, but only this working correctly also with BCC. Only what I missing is option to set allowed sites. Now it is available only option to set sites dissabled.
  • (2018-03-18) Derek Matuszewski: Works great! Allows me to click email hyperlinks and open Gmail. People don't understand that this can only open webmail.
  • (2018-03-05) Did not work with Yahoo mail
  • (2018-02-05) Judyth Hulford: Add 'system default action' back in and I'll reinstall it. Never use webmail.
  • (2018-01-02) Richard Hartzell: very simply does not work with OUTLOOK
  • (2017-12-25) The app does open outlook.com but the entire point of clicking the mailto: is to get a compose screen. With this extension it still requires me to copy and paste the URL. It's easier to do that by hand than using this app.
  • (2017-12-24) steven: It is as expected.
  • (2017-12-07) Chris Patrick: You used to be able to set "System default action" which I used all the time but it has been removed. It is shown on the screen shot in the Chrome web Store screen shot. i have uninstalled and reinstalled but to no effect. Windows 10 and Outlook 2013 locally installed
