Alfred 5 doesn't know macOS default mail reader for mailto:// URLs in Bash/Zsh


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

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.

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 //.
