Using Gmail in Internet Explorer with Addy's Mailto Hyperlinks

So, you use Internet Explorer, but you do not use Microsoft's Outlook?  Whenever you click the email link in AddressTwo, it attempts to open Microsoft's products (either Outlook, Outlook Express, or the latest Live Mail) to send the email.  But what if you use GMail instead? 

In Firefox and Chrome, the process is very simple.  However, in internet explorer, it requires some downloads.  We suggest following the instructions from this Yahoo Answers user: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071015193135AAnmEOO

Download and install the free Gmail notifier. In Windows, right-click the Notifier icon in your system tray, and select 'Options.' Then check the box next to 'Use Gmail for internet mailto: links' and click 'OK.'

  2. Rob, If you muse Mac mail, the standard Mailto: link should already be working without need to make adjustments.
