A method to select the account for processing the mailto links if there are multiple accounts in the browser.
I came accross this problem when I visited Shimmy1996’s blog, which uses email as comment system.
I found that Gmail uses the first account as the default to handle the
mailto links. You have to change the link manually (from
/u/1 things like that) to switch to another account.
Shimmy pointed out a way to deal with it, changing the default account to handle the link.
Getting Gmail to handle all mailto: links with registerProtocolHandler
This link shows how to add Gmail as the mailto handler in the browser. What we need to change is revising the link in the configuration.
1 2 3 4 5 navigator.registerProtocolHandler( "mailto", "https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1?extsrc=mailto&url=%s", "Gmail" );
/u/1 to whatever account you want. Press Enter and done.
Now you should be able to use the new account to reply emails.
BTW, I found an interesting text art, share it here:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 |￣￣￣￣￣￣￣￣￣| | Pls continue | | social | | distancing if | | ur able to | |＿＿＿＿＿＿＿＿＿| (\__/) || (・ ㅅ ・) || / づ
(I modified some characters to achieve satisfying visual effect.)
