- Open URL in web browser (e.g. Composing view of web mails)
- Pop up a menu for selecting the behaviors described above and launching of the specified email application

almost works

I want this to work, there’s just one bug on El Capitan 10.11.3
When i use it once, sets itself back as the default mail client. So basically this is a one-shot solution, I have to change my preferences back to MailtoInterceptor after each mailto link I click. It works the first time, then takes over again :(
