Set GMail as default KDE mail client

It’s more simple and fast then you think:

  • Open System Settings -> Default Applications -> Email Client;
  • Check Use a different email client;
  • Type the following: /usr/bin/rekonq https://mail.google.com/mail/?view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&to=%t&su=%s&%u.

Where instead of /usr/bin/rekonq, you can type the path to your favorite browser. %t is the recipient, %s is the subject and %u is the full mailto URL (needed if you want to add the body too).

Kheers!
