Here's how I got Chrome to open mailto: links in Gmail. It's catywampus, but it works for now. First, install the Google notifier, and make sure it's set with the google account you prefer to use for mailto links.
Fellow Gmail users. Ever click on a 'mailto' link to share web content via email, only to have your browser attempt to open the wrong email client? For instance, my computer always used to try opening up Outlook, even though I'm a Gmailer. Suffer no more. Here's how to fix it so your. How can I make OUTLOOK my default email in Chrome and IE 9? I had Hotmail as my default email.I would like to make Outlook/Hotmail my default email in Chrome. With IE it only gives Windows Live as the default email option. Please advise.

Then, go to the Mail program, open it, choose Preferences under the apple menu, then General, and under the Default Email reader, choose the Google Notifier. Alternately you could use a Gmail reader like MailPlane, which I've used before when mailto wouldn't talk to Gmail. I know, crazy that Chrome doesn't play happily with gmail, huh? If there's a better way to do this, I'd love to know.
This doesn't open up gmail in Chrome, but just a compose window for my account, but it's not bad. †Tommy G.† 7/4/2010, 13:43 น. Free photo editing software for mac computers. Twilock - even though Im using Chrome to write this response to you, my computer doesnt even give me the option to set Chrome as the default (will probably have to do on Chrome itself) and my choices for default email client are Outlook, Opera, and Windows Mail. Frankly, I think it's ridiculous that Google creates their own browser but it doesnt even play well with their own email service. As a huge Google fan and user of almost all their products, this is annoying and disappointing.

In Chrome, when I click mailto: links, I want Chrome to open a GMail compose window instead of using the system default mailto handler (Outlook). I want mailto links on the rest of the system to use Outlook, but in Chrome I'd rather have it use GMail. In order to do this, I needed to add a protocol handler to Chrome. Back in the day (two or three years ago), this was accomplished by following the steps here: Lifehacker: Set Firefox 3 to Launch Gmail for mailto Links. The current Chrome didn't allow it to work and I couldn't find a way to add a protocol handler manually.
