Is it possible to make mailto links from the local web browser open up in Citrix Outlook 2010 with XenApp 6.5?
All I can find about this which applies to Xenapp 5 on Win 2003:http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX120688
I have followed that instructions but it still doesn't work. When I click the mailto links in IE on my local computer it opens up in my local outlook.
When I check the file association on my computer it says that .mmm - URL:MailTo-Protocol extension should open up with Citrix XenApp.
I use Online Plugin 18.104.22.168 on my computer.
The environment is XenApp 6.5 with hotfix rollup 1 on Windows 2008 R2 using Office 2010. And the local computer is Win 8 with Online Plugin.
I've looked into this and it is currently not possible to redirect mailto: links.
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that link about the other way around? If a user clicks on a http link in a Citrix app, it will open up on his local web browser.
I want the other way around. The client is browsing on his local web browser, clicks on a mailto link and it should open up in Citrix Outlook and not local outlook.
Sorry, i must have mis-read your post. did you follow http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX120688 ?
Yes, I followed that post.
I changed it on 1 out of 3 servers and published a Copy of Outlook on only that server to my user. But it still opens up in my local outlook.
If I check the file extention settings on my local computer I see that .mmm URL:MailTo is set to Citrix XenApp and not my local Outlook.
I then copied that html code to create a .html file, opened that one and clicked on the link. But it opens on my local outlook.
I run Windows 8 witch XenApp 22.214.171.124 and Outlook 2013 installed
I have tried this on different machines now and it does acually work on some, but I cant find any "red thread" anywhere.
It works on some machines and not on others that are almost identical. It is spread between x86 and x64. I have tried to uninstall Outlook localy, but it still doesnt work.
One thing I have noticed is that the .mmm extention does change on all computers. But there is also a protocol named "MAILTO" which does not change on the computers that does not work. So that seems to be the problem, the question is why it changes on some and not on others.
Does anyone have any experience with this solution and have any idea of what can be causing this behaviour? Fixing this would save me alot of trouble.
