- In OS X, use Mail.app to set Emacs to the system mail app
- Try any program that includes a link to a mailto, or that needs
  to send a mail (e.g., Cmd-Shift-i in Safari)
- Emacs gets the focus, but send mail user agent is not invoked
- However, the "send selection with emacs" service works fine!
