Set default mail program to Gmail via GPO?
Hello all! I'm new here and also new to supporting a school district. I'm hoping someone here can help me with this.
It seems like it should be pretty simple to do, I just don't know how. All of our staff use Gmail for email. And everyone uses it through their browser. However, when someone clicks on an email, it defaults to opening Outlook. How can I set GPO to make Gmail the default email program for everyone? The trick is that some people use Internet Explorer, some use Chrome and some use Firefox. Yeah, I know, I don't like that either, but it's what I have to work with.
Any suggestions out there? Anyone had to do this themselves and know how?
Thanks in advance for the help!

There's a helpful discussion of this problem with a possible solution here:
