Is there an accessible URL for the New Mail screen in webmail? I'd like to try this new tool to set KMS webmail as my default mailto handler.

Thank you.

Damn, that would be nice. Hope such a thing comes to the Windows environment soon (and KMS 'supports' such a thing) :)

Perhaps one of the Kerio guys could tell us what the URL to bring up the new mail window in the full version of Kerio is...

This would be sweet if it worked...even sweeter if Kerio could somehow build this into the product (but I'd settle for the php url...)

In the full version of the webmail it's:
http://AddressOfYourServer/default/mailCompose.php?allowHtml =true&

Nice tool :-)

Better URLs:

http://SITE/default/mailCompose.php?mailTo=[to]&allowHtml=true for Firefox
http://SITE/default/mailCompose.php?mailTo=[to] for Safari

You have to be logged in when using it.

Login to WebMail first. It will then work until you quit the browser completely or session expires (after 1 hour by default).

Yeah. Stupid me. I should have read the 'need to be logged in' part of the message :)

Under Windows you can do it by a registry key.

I found this little snippet that creates an additional 'email provider' so you can choose it from within Internet Options --> Programs. Of course, the command line is not correct yet, but I'll let you figure it out :)

Change the three '<.a.t.>' into the real at-sign. Also, it reads 'Protocols' and 'Open' (for some reason this forum messes up the text).

Quote:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO]
<.a.t.>="WebMailPRO"


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO\Protoco ls]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO\Protoco ls\mailto]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO\Protoco ls\mailto\shell]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO\Protoco ls\mailto\shell\open]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO\Protoco ls\mailto\shell\open\command]
<.a.t.>="\"iexplore.exe\" www.k12usa.com/webmail2/send.asp?mte=1&data=%1"


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO\Shell]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO\Shell\o pen]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\WebMailPRO\Shell\o pen\command]
<.a.t.>="\"iexplore.exe\" www.k12usa.com/webmail2/send.asp?mte=1&data=%1"




You could also simply just change this registry key:
Quote:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command

to the proper command (including 'iexplore.exe' of 'firefox.exe'), but that's less nice.

I'd love to look into it myself, but that's gonna be next year, as I'm now leaving for a skiing holiday :)

Here's a registry file that I found through a Google search. Looks very much like they use Kerio. It's almost identical to yours winkelman.

(i edited out the web addresses, if you use this you'll need to enter your own.)

Interesting...

Your (and my) example is not good. It obviously addresses a (web)mail server that uses asp. Kerio uses php.

I did some more fiddling and am getting closer with the registry entries below. Two problems remain: firstly I get a "your session has expired" whenever I click a mailto link and Webmail opens (while indeed I'm logged in before clicking on the link). Secondly I can't pass the proper data to the URL. The %1 passes the complete mailto-url to Webmail ('mailto:user<_a.t_>domain.com'), while webmail actually wants just the address ('user<_a.t_>domain.com') behind its 'mailto=' variable.

Has anyone got this working?

I haven't got it to work yet either. I did for get about the PHP thing, so glad you mentioned that.

From my moderate knowledge of this kind of stuff, and from what I see here, I believe we are at a point where we will need to get more from Kerio. Or in other words, it seems that maybe that Kerio'd webmail is not fully setup to handle this. I was examining Yahoo's setup for webmail capability as a primary e-mail app in Windows, and saw they do fully expect and use the "mailto:whomever<_a.t_>..." URL that is passed to I.E. And they use cookies to verify the user upon calls to the web site for sending e-mail. Both of which Kerio does not do.

Time to submit a product enhancement suggestion I guess... Smile
