    Default email client

    KMail seems to be the default email client. How could I make the google email (gmail.com) as my default client for all my applications? Thanks.

    Also, as gmail.com is a *website* not an application, you cannot really set this as default mail client I suppose...

    Of course you should be able to set gmail.com as default account in your email client (be it Thunderbird or KMail or whatever).

    But the question AIUI was how to set gmail.com as default email client (instead of KMail) for all applications...

    You can try to create a .desktop file in the Desk
    Copy this

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Type = Link
    Terminal = false
    URL = (Your Gmail Url)
    Hidden = false
    Name = Google.Gmail
    And then in systemsettyngs> search> default applications and put the .desktop file created.
    Try .... maybe it works , I have no other ideas
    If you do not go out of the way to cancel it

    Try setting 'firefox gmail.com' as the default mail client. Another thing you could do is changing the mime type for the "mailto:"

    Yes, I interpret it as the same. I believe the OP does (did?) not quite understand the difference between an e-mail client and the website online mail account.

    To OP: If so, you can set it in the e-mail client of your choice, including in KMail, as Wolfi suggests.
