I would like it if someone could make a program that forwards Mailto: links to another program (such as Espresso).

Ummm... "forwards"? Do you mean sending to multiple applications? Or do you just need to change the mailto: handler to something that isn't Outlook Express? smiley

I just want a program that takes whatever Vista gives to the e-mail client and give Espresso the e-mail address that's in the original command line parameter (Espresso uses the -compose mailto:%1 parameter in order to fill in the To field of the compose window).

Still not sure I'm following you - is Espresso a mail client, and (if so) is it your system default client?

Or do you want to launch the system default client *and* pass the argument to espresso?

Espresso is a mail client and is set as the default. The problem is that when clicking a Mailto: link, its compose window pops up without the To field filled. Somehow, its ignoring the info given via the %1 variable.

Ah... it sounds like you need to file a bug report to the Espresso people then, instead of requesting an app?

I did. Just thought I would ask for a temporary fix until he fixes it.
