Customize Extension Options

By default, this extension supports Gmail but you can customize extension settings and use any other email provider (like Outlook etc.) or any email client installed on your device (like Thunderbird etc.). For this, you need to visit the options page of the extension. Chrome and Edge users can easily open the options page by making a right click on extension’s icon on the toolbar. Right click on the icon on the toolbar, and select “Options” as shown in the following screenshot:

Firefox users can follow this guide to change the extension options.

On this options page, you need to change the Mail Service settings (as shown in the following screenshot), which is set to Gmail by default. This would set the extension to open email just like a mailto: link, which should be handled by the default email handler client assigned on your browser or device.

Provide Default Recipients, CC and BCC

Users can also provide default recipients, cc and bcc addresses on the above options page. The provided addresses will be automatically pre-filled in their respective fields while composing the email.

    thanks for creating this. better than my current extension Email All Tabs which doesn’t work in all cases. just one feature request if it could also include tabs in incognito mode. good job.

    I would like this better if it linked only one particular tab, for example when I want to send a news story or other info to someone

    for one particular tab, you can use our ‘Share Tools’ extension: https://browsernative.com/share-tools-extension/

    It is simply incredible that your extension does not produce a title & url list! Format:

    TITLE
    URL

    TITLE
    URL

    TITLE
    URL

    This is most necessary!
