Register URI for custom application only for Outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi all,

     I would like to register my application against URIs mailto:, callto:, tel:, only for/on Outlook  (when we click mail or tel links from Outlook).

    I have gone through the url :

    The issues with this are :

     1) Globally registers/changes the application against uri instead of only from outlook.

     2) tel: or callto: doesn't not work, if we have skype or lync on the machine.

     3) Doesn't work with Windows 8 and 8.1

    Please let me know what are the register entries I have to modify, I googled for it, I could not get any solution.

  • Hello Bala,

    The Outlook extensibility model doesn't provide anything for that. All you can do is to develop an Outlook add-in where you may try to detect the click event. But even for that Outlook does not provide anything.
