I suggest you...

add support for mailto links. E.g. Open Mail or Entourage

If I click a mailto link within a web site, I would like the option to contact the link on a personal basis (using Mail) or for business purposes (using Entourage)

    Please add this! I'm trying to get around the annoyance that Bento only lets you send e-mail to the default app, I use Bento for a database of e-mail clients not needed on Apple Mail

    I would love to have this feature. I always use at least two different e-mail clients (Gmail and Mail) and would love it if I didn't have to copy+paste e-mail addresses all the time.

    It would be one more feather in Choosy's cap if it were to add support for mailto links.

    Found a Workaround to address an email address to more than one email client:
    - add under advanced a rule with API method eg. "Outlook"
    - add always open with "outlook"
    - create a service with Automator
    - add AppleScript with method API "outlook" see example on choosy webpage dev API
    - add more services for more than one client

    Now with right click on emailadress > services > outlook open compose window in outlook

    Similar to this request but slightly different, I'd like the ability to set Choosy as my default mail app and have it behave like the current browser behavior. This would allow me to always send work related e-mail via Outlook and all other addresses via another client or possibly direct to a compose URL for g-mail.

    I also need this. Under the advanced tab rules, it would be nice to have an option to recognize mailto links and then open them in the browser of my choice. I keep a Fluid instance of my web-based mail client open, but I surf in another browser. I can't believe choosy doesn't already have this feature. Hopefully it will come soon!

    Going to add my vote to this, but more specifically would like to see Choosy automatically assign an action (or option list) anytime a "mailto:" link is clicked - in my use case, I'd want gmail to open in Google Chrome
