I'd like to change my default application for handling mailto: links to be the gmail browser-based client. I'd like to do this without configuring the default mail.app. That means I cannot get to the mail.app preferences panel. Does anyone know how?

    I just desperately need to vent my frustration about this. I mean really, who puts a default app config behind a mandatory account setup!? Commented Aug 10, 2016 at 15:26

RCDefaultApp allows you to pipe mailto: links to an app different to the app you have set as the default mail app.
