You can change the default mail client to use gmail via your browser pretty easily and you can follow these instructions to get it started.
But, since I’ve moved from the free Gmail to a new email address, this function no longer works and it’s been really frustrating.
Thankfully, I found a simple Chrome Extension which allows me to use a Google Apps domain like
saddington.vc and I get the same behavior!
You can install it here… and I’m a much happier email user now.
