Evolution default mail program


Hello

What I should add to Opera´s mail program launch command to start Evolution with new message with that address what I clicked. Now I have typed evolution to that launch command and it only launches Evolution, and I have to manually make a new message.

So what is the correct command?

Cheers

That is NOT what I asked! There reads now evolution and it is starting evolution WITHOUT the new message window. The question was what to put there so that evolution starts a new message also with the clicked recipient.

Thx anyway.

Ok, so maybe I didn't understand your question completely. That doesn't mean you need to reply like a little bitch. It is always easier to get assistance when you are polite.

Anyway, if you had gone to the Opera web site and search "mailto handlers" in the knowledge base you would have found this. These are the options that are available.

Don't yell at me, I didn't create Opera or Evolution.


-mail

The following specifiers are supported by Opera for Linux when passing mailto-links on to an external e-mail client:

* %t (to) - Replaced by the receiver
* %c (cc) - Replaced by the cc receiver
* %s (subject) - Replaced by the subject text
* %b (body) - Replaced by the body text
* %r (raw) - Replaced by the raw url. The result will always start with "mailto:" (Opera 6.02 and newer only)
* %w (raw) - As %r but without the "mailto:" prefix (Opera 6.02 and newer only)

The specifiers can be placed within a set of brackets. If the specifiers are not replaced by real data, then the text within the brackets (and the brackets themselves) are removed to avoid confusion when starting the mailer.

If brackets are omitted, Opera will pass on the entire string, regardless of its contents.

Example 1:

Opera is set to use kmail as an external e-mail client, using the following specifiers:

kmail [-s %s] [--body %b] [%t]

1. The URL <"mailto:abc@xyz.nn?body=hello"> becomes:

kmail abc@xyz.nn --body hello

2. The URL <"mailto:abc@xyz.nn?body=hello?subject=how are you"> becomes:

kmail abc@xyz.nn --body hello -subject how are you

Example 2:

Set Evolution as an external e-mail client using the following specifier:

evolution [%r]

The URL <"mailto:abc@xyz.nn?body=hello?subject=how are you"> becomes:

evolution mailto:abc@xyz.nn?body=hello?subject=how are you
