How to set IBM Verse as your Default Email Client

We've recently rolled out IBM Verse and we're trying to get our staff members to use it (willingly) rather than mandating the change. 

One of the issues that we've come up against is the humble Mailto link. 

If you go to any web page that has a mailto link and click it, it goes to Notes.

Obviously we want those links to go to Verse.

It's a simple fix, here's how to do it.

How To

  1. Open IBM Verse in Google Chrome
    (it might be possible to use other browser but I haven't tested them).
  2. Click on the Service Handler Icon in the Address Bar (Right hand side)
  3. A dialog box will appear asking if you want to allow Verse to open all Email links.
  4. Choose Allow.
  5. Click Finished.
That's all there is to it.  Now you can browse around and find a mailto link like this one and click it.  

and here's a picture (click on it if it's too small).
