    Default Open-Xchange as default mail client using prism

    Hey there,

    we are using Open-Xchange for about 3 years now and are very happy with it. To increase user experience we use Prism to launch Open-Xchange. So it behaves more like a desktop application, can be minimized to tray etc.

    The only thing we are still looking for is how to integrate Open-Xchange with mailto: links or "Send via email". As much as I know this can be done when using GMail with Prism.

    Has anybody of you made some experiences with how to integrate Open-Xchange web interface with the mailto: protocol?

    Best,
    Matthias

    Hi,

    i have not done that, but it would require configuration changes at the operating system to handle those links. I really don't think/hope a web application can modify the operating system this way. Some kind of client software needs to handle those mailto links and forward them to ox. This client application could log-in and open a "new mail" dialog for the user, for example.

    Greetings

    Yes, usually prism is configured with Open-Xchange and the operating system is configured to handle mailto: links with that prism application. In prism we can use JavaScript to handle the incoming requests from the operating system. So if I knew which JavaScript classes/functions are responsible for writing new emails, I could probably write the JavaScript code for prism.

    Is there any client-side function that can be used something like that:

    ox.writeNewMail("addy@mail.com", "this is the subject");

    any news on this? there is definitely demand for such a feature - do happen to know whether this on the OX roadmap?

    also, has anyone investigated this further - is this feasible with the current ox javascript client?

    best regards,

    Use ox.api.event.register(ox.api.event.common.Ready, ...) to wait till the client finished initialization. Then you can use functions like ox.api.mail.compose().

    See js/api.js in the GUI source code for JSDoc documentation.
