How can I set up iCloud as the default email provider in my browser? I am using Linux and if I click on a mailto link in a web page it goes to my Gmail account. Can this be changed to make it go to my iCloud account?

This isn't a question about Apple or iCloud but depends on your Linux distribution and/or your browser. See if this page helps if you're using Firefox---support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/925377 –  CraftyThumber Oct 27 '12 at 20:26
This is welcome here simply by virtue of it being about using the iCloud service Apple provides, but @CraftyThumber might be correct that if it's not answered here we might want to look at migrating it to one of the linux partner sites in a week or two. –  bmike Oct 27 '12 at 21:11
