Is it possible for a mailto link to open OWA?

Is it possible for a mailto link to open OWA without using any third party software? We are using Windows7 and Office 365 and would like to be able to do this in either IE11 or Firefox.

Technically, it should be. You will need to edit the mailto protocol association in regedit:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command

Replace the default with the IE and pass the OWA URL. The 'compose new mail' window is https://outlook.office365.com/#viewmodel=IMailComposeViewModelFactory&wid=48&ispopout=1

However, I have no idea how to pass the recipient address, subject or any other info that might be contained in the mailto: link.

Hi we have tried the above regedit as well as various others, but have failed to resolve this in IE. Firefox will allow us to do this though.

We have decided that we may have to look for a third party solution to resolve this.

Although this is workable in Firefox, it is not supported in IE so it does look like we will have to use a third party app to resolve this.
