I use Firefox and for me, it just brings up a list of websites in google....   That get's me to thinking that maybe firefox has a plug-in for this?   hmmm

Thanks for your effort sunithnair.  What do you think?

I tried this link in Firefox and when i click on it it takes me to gmail login screen and after i login takes me directly to the compose message window. Was this your requirement?

I found a plug-in though that will do it.  It is a firefox plug-in/add-on called mailfrom

Thank you again
