Can't we have a quick compose link on the personal page GM module?

like this:

INBOX SHOW PREVIEW QUICK COMPOSE

If gmail is your default webbrowser, you can just type mailto:email[put at-character here]domain.com into your address bar and quickly get a compose window.

Note: I think you have to have the Gmail notifier to allow this option.

The Google toolbar allows this function in firefox and in IE as well.

There is a nice 'hack' for Opera & GMail:

Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Programs -> (Edit protocol mailto):

opera --newpage "http://mail.google.com/mail/?view=cm&fs=1&to=%t&su=%s&body=%b&cc=%c"

Now every clicked link will bring new tab with 'GMail compose new msg'

Huh the link one more time:

opera --newpage "h t t p : / / m a i l . g o o g l e . c o m /

mail/?view=cm&fs=1&to=%t&su=%s&body=%b&cc=%c"

(put everything in one line & delete spaces)
