    I wonder if that is something that would be handled by a browser extension.

    Isn't that set in Mail preferences? General > Default email reader.

    Would that allow you to select Safari as the default email reader and then instruct Safari to navigate to the gmail website?

    That's what I thought. But maybe not. When I type mailto: into the Safari address window it goes back to Mail. There might not be a way to tell the System that mailto links are supposed to go to a web page.

    I wonder if Automator could do something like this, could possibly run as a service. Any Automator pro's in the house?

    This works for me - I have outlook set as default email client and web links / email links etc go directly to outlook not apple mail even when clicked within Safari browser.

    I think it is less about gmail address and more about the email client selected in mail preferences - ie outlook, Thunderbird etc.
