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....Voilà!
...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.
