We can open from the browser field. From the native browser I think no.

I believe there are two ways that you can do this but have never attempted this myself:


a) Using the HTTPFilter

basically this matches an application to the domain of the URL request and can start that application


b) Using the Content Handler API - this will then process the URL


If you search the forum you will find out more about both of these.


There is potentially a third option that I have used, that is the PatternRepository.  But this API is only available when the text is being displayed using an Active EditField, so it will work in an ordinary email, but not in the Browser or an html email.
