Workflow that I was using in Alfred 4 is failing on Alfred 5 throwing an error that no application knows how to open URL mailto:// from a bash/zsh script.

I have tested open "mailto://" from my terminal and it opens whichever default mail reader I have set in Mail Preferences.

Before I rework it using a different method thought I ought to report it.

Happy to share the workflow if required.

 

Thanks

I can’t reproduce your report, so a stripped down version of the Workflow is indeed needed to look into it further.

Note mailto: links don’t use //.
