Is there a way to use Edge as the default mail client? I tried setting it in Windows Settings, but not sure how to have it go to https://outlook.office365.com to compose the email.

@Bruce Roberts do you have this working? I have tried and doesn't seem to work as expected.

@Carlo Mendoza 

That's weird: for Gmail, I got a prompt when I clicked my first mailto: link. I didn't add any extensions and once prompted, I accepted and now Gmail opens in Edge Dev for mailto links.
