mailto: no more

It’s time to stop using mailto: links.

I mean c’mon. You think I still read my email in a local client? That’s just so twentieth century.

    I’ve started using Affixa, http://www.affixa.com/. It allows your web based mail to be used for mailto: links. I have it set for my Gmail and a a Google Accounts mail address too. Click on a link, it pops up and you choose which account you want to send your mail through. Fantastic little program.

    Oh, cool. I actually had a vague memory that Gmail used to parse mailto: links and hack them to do what it wanted, but it didn’t do it last night, so either that feature’s been taken out or my memory is faulty!
