A fantastically simple tool to make email links open to your webmail service of choice.

If you're frustrated that Apple Mail opens every time you click an email address in your web browser, this is the solution!

Works out of the box with popular services like Gmail, AOL, Outlook, Yahoo, Office365, Fastmail, Zoho, and Yandex.

Do you use a different service? There's a "Copy to Clipboard" option for you. It saves you a few clicks by copying the To: address to your clipboard so you can paste it wherever you like.

If your favorite email service is not supported, you're welcome to email and I'll see if I can add it. (Sorry Protonmail fans; yours cannot be supported unless Protonmail adds a needed feature.)

Works with Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and others. Because Open In Webmail is an app and not a browser-plugin, it works system-wide.

Concerned about privacy? I am, too. That's why this app is "sandboxed" such that it cannot collect or transmit any of your data. That's how it should be.

What’s New

Version 1.4

+ Native support for the latest M1-based Macs.
+ New "Copy to Clipboard" option can copy the email address instead of opening webmail.
+ All documentation is now bundled with the app under Help > Open In Webmail Help.
+ Outlook / Live users: Fixed bug where spaces in pre-filled subject line were changed to (+) signs.

Does the job

Simple task, well executed, for not much money. Crazy that this isn't built into the OS but there you go
