    Default Zimbra Desktop2 Beta 2 - system wide mailto handling

    I just installed Zimbra Desktop 2 Beta 2 since it was supposed to fix being able to use zimbra desktop for mailto handling and it is still not working on my pc, I am running vista business and only have ZD connected to my zimbra server account. Anyone else got this working? If so, what did you have to do to get it working?

    We actually are actively working on it. Orginally planed for a fix in beta 3, but ran into issues. Now it's targeted for next release, which is about a month from now.

    Here is the bug opened: https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=37462

    Looking for a little clarification here. Bug 37462 seems to address adding functionality to ZD so that a Windows user can either right-click on a document or within certain applications (MS Office for one) click File and select "Send To --> Mail Recipient" and it will work with ZD. There is also the issue of allowing a Windows user to set ZD as the default e-mail program, which would then open a "Compose" message window in ZD when a user clicks on a "mailto:" link within an email message, web page, etc. To me these are two different functions. Does bug 37462 address both things?

    yup, for Windows 7 and Vista, this bug should resolve both.

    Thanks for the clarification. From following the forums and with my own experience I got the feeling that the "mailto:" handling thing is a Windows Vista / 7 issue, while the "Send To --> Mail Recipient" is new functionality. That's why I thought it was two separate issues. But if you say bug 37462 will fix them both then I'll take your word on it

    Thanks again,
    John
