All you need to do is to modify an Opera file. This modification will let you click any email to link on any webpage to use your Gmail.

  • In order to use Gmail as default email client in Opera 10, go to C:\Program Files\Opera\defaults as a first step.
  • Locate ebmailproviders.ini file and open it with Notepad.
  • Now, go right at the end of the list and add thids piece of code:
  • [Gmail]
    ID=8
    URL=https://mail.google.com/mail/?extsrc=mailto&url=%s
    ICON=http://mail.google.com/mail/images/favicon.ico

  • Save the file and close it.
  • Now go to Opera and click Preferences.
  • Go to Advanced – Programs and select mailto from the Protocol list.
  • Now, click the Edit button and click the Use a Web mail service button.
  • Click OK and restart Opera for the change to take effect.
  • If you use OS X as operating system and still want to set Gmail in Opera 10, you will have the same procedure but you will have to locate the file Webmailproviders.ini in Contents\Resources\defaults.

    The file is called ‘webmailproviders.ini’, not ‘ebmailproviders.ini’…

    I had exactly the same problem as in the above comment and solved it in exactly the same way. I can add that that was on a machine running Vista. There is no difficultly in saving the file on XP. And the hack works faultlessly on both machines.

    I forgot to mention that I couldn’t save wemmailproviders.ini where it is installed. I got access denied. So I saved it on the desktop and moved it to the original location and replaced the original file. I sure get tired of being told what to do on my own computer.
