The link2email Addon adds a button to your Firefox navigation bar. one click on the button opens up a dropdown list of predefined recipients. Clicking on the desired recipient will automatically open the default mail program and the currently opened URL in Safari can be send with one click to that recipient.
To add a new contact just go to 'Options' and insert the following information:
- Subject (optional)
- Message (optional)
Within the "Message" field you can use
%link% as a placeholder where the link will be inserted later.
This plugin was build because we needed something like this for our daily work at http://iphone-tricks.de and http://facebook-tricks.de to communicate with many authors and to exchange interesting links. In general this plugin is perfect if you exchange links on a regular basis with the same people over and over again, for example also for affiliate sites like http://günstige-handytarife.de this plugin can be useful.
Which Email programs are supported?
All email clients e.g. Microsoft Outlook or Gmail and all others are supported as this plugin just uses the 'mailto:' function to open the default email program.
This addon creates a local JSON file within your Firefox profile folder to store the settings and contacts. Otherwise no information is stored or transmitted online, since only the 'mailto' function is called.
