    Hey all, I just got a gmail invite and was trying to figure out how to set mailto: links to go to Gmail. I found Gmailto, but that doesn't seem to work. Whenever I click a mailto: link with Gmailto activated, Safari just says "Mac OS X does not recognize addresses starting with 'mailto:'" or something like that. Any solutions?

    Gmail offers free POP3 access, so you could just configure Mail (or whatever your default email client is) to access your Gmail account. That should make it so when you click mailto links you'll be able to use Gmail to send the message. You can find details on how to configure POP3 access for Gmail in the Gmail help.
