I am slowly migrating to using Gmail as my primary email client instead of Apple's Mail application.
One thing that has been holding me back is that, as you may know, I send out a lot of links to interesting articles through email.
Mail.app is set to be my default email client so, in my browser when I pull down from the file menu and select Send Link to this Page… Apple's Mail.app opens.
How would I select another app for this? Gmail is a webclient not an on board app… Well, Google has fixed this with Google Notifier.
I downloaded and installed the application. Opening the app asks you for your Google email and password. I put in my Kinnschools email address. It shows up as a Mail and Calendar icon in the menubar.
Then I just went to Apple's mail app and pulled down from the Mail menu to preferences, picked the General tab and selected Google Notifier as my default email application.
I then closed Apple's Mail.app and pulled it off my Dock. I don't think I'll be using it much from here on out.
I'm living in the cloud, man…
