Host to Client mailto Redirection

Andrew Shaffer1709154225


Running VDA 7.16 with the recent update on Server 2016.


Looking to do redirection of URLs and mailto links to local client applications. HTTP/HTTPS URL redirection is working great to the local client. However, mailto is not functioning. It seems this may be a limitation of the ServerFTA process from Citrix, but I'm wondering if anyone has figured this out.


On the VDA, I've tried setting HKLM\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ServerFTA\Capabilities\URLAssociations\mailto to ServerFTAHTML and also created the key HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Citrix\SFTA with the ExtraURLProtocols value set to mailto:// After setting the FTA for mailto for the user in control panel>default programs as well, the best I can get is a non-stop loop of IE opening the mailto: link in the server's IE.


Is this possible to pass mailto links to the local client with the way XenDesktop handles host to client redirection?
