Google’s Gmail is pretty cool. In fact, I’m using it as my primary user interface for my personal mailbox right now. Now I’m trying to figure out how to make mailto: links result in a jump to the Gmail compose screen. The first step is getting Windows to turn “navigate to a mailto: link” into a jump to a parameterized URL of my choosing. Then the second part is to figure out what a Gmail compose URL looks like.

I’m having zero success with either of them. Anyone got any hints?
