Dear Lazyweb,

Icedove, Iceape, Evolution, Sylpheed, Sylpheed-Claws and Mutt.

Is your favorite mail client missing? Does your mail client accept URLs in mailto-format? If yes, please drop me a note containing the name of your mail client, if it needs a terminal (like mutt) and an example call which starts the client with address, subject an body already filled in.

Examples:

  • Icedove (needs no terminal)
    icedove "mailto:mail@example.com?subject=foosubject&body=foobody"
  • Sylpheed (needs no terminal)
    sylpheed --compose "mailto:mail@example.com?subject=foosubject&body=foobody"

I'll use this data to include more clients in Reportbug-NG. Please double-check if your mail client really supports mailto-URLs with subject and body. KMail for instance accepts such a parameter but silently drops subject and body.
