    a how to send mailto links to webmail 11.10

    install the 'desktop-webmail' package
    run this package, found in internet and select one of the providers

    (I run gnome shell, so I assume unity is similar)

    Now you might have to setup thunderbird (even with bogus names) to get the next part to show up, I DID. Until then, the system info for default mail never listed 'desktop webmail' as a selectable option.

    then goto default applications found in system info
    set the default mail to desktop-webmail instead of thunderbird or evolution

    I run chrome and I also installed the mailto extension and set it to my webmail

    some various screen shots along the way.

    I also updated desktop-webmail package to version 003 by following this link.

    if you dont know how, use this:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:asac/sandbox
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install desktop-webmail

    verify that you use a 003 based version using:
    dpkg -l desktop-webmail
    So now when I click on a mailto link, it loads the webmail page instead.
