Change behavior of mailto links inside Connections

Customer is running IC5 + CR3 and Connections Mail 1.7 iFix3.

Integration is working fine. Customer would like to know if it's possible to have the mailto links in Connections (such as the email address in the profiles and business cards) reconfigured to use Connections Mail instead of the default mail application registered in the OS (currently Notes client).

It's not an option for them to change the default mail application registered in the OS at the moment. They would like to know if this can be made inside connections only.

If reconfiguring the links in Connections is not possible, does Connections Mail plugin alone provide an API that you can call, passing an email address, and resulting in a new email created with that addess as the recipient?
