Open a terminal (<ctl><alt><t>)

Enter:

sudo gedit /usr/local/bin/mailto.sh

When the edit opens; cut'n'paste:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

sylpheed --compose "$1"



Save and close the file.

Enter:

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/mailto.sh

to make the file executable.

In your web browser (Firefox) that is already open go to

Ok, in Step #2 where you choose mailto.sh you also see GMail, Yahoo Mail....I had to try it.

From the bilge I dragged up an old GMail account. I selected GMail at Step #2....VoilĂ !

...so if you prefer<sigh> to use GMail you can. There are also provisions to use other email or webmail apps as you so choose.
