Did you configure your GNOME mail reader in (Foot Menu)->Desktop
Preferences->Preferred Applications->Mail Reader? I have mine set to
Evolution, and mailto: links work fine for me in Galeon.

It would be nice if the default was "Debian Sensible Mail Reader" (like
the settings under Web Browser and Terminal), which doesn't seem to
exist currently.
