Send Mail Opens Gmail

Web Development

Updated Jan 20th, 2021

I think this is how mailto: is supposed to work. Instead I always get an awkward popup about which mailbox default I would like to open (hint: none of the ones listed)

I’ve seen this on treehugger,, and a few others sites

It’s like magic, a link that opens your mail editor and puts in a to: address and a subject line.
