How to open email-link in external mail client? (Mac)

Occasional Contributor

After some updates it happens again that Edge opens the Gmail (web application) when clicking on an email-link. I cannot find the setting to change this ...to open it in my external mail client. 

 

Can anyone help?

Hi,
check in here: edge://settings/content/handlers
and see if Gmail is added, if you see it or anything else, remove them

And again this seeting has changed after an update. So boring. 

Really? i'm sure not by itself..Gmail must have asked you and you chose yes. they usually prompt the user at the top left corner near the address bar. they can't set themselves as handlers without user's permission/interaction

@HotCakeX for sure by itself. Would never give that permission because I hate this setting. Happened not for the first time.

in that case try turning off handlers altogether
