clicking a file: link to a local or network mapped file in a mail message does
nothing at all. I believe this is considered a security risk and so not allowed.
If so, a message would be nice.

open in window or tab both do nothing too. Save link targer works - allows you
to save the file.

This one's interesting if it is considered a security risk - "bookmark this
link" saves a bookmark and selecting it opens the file.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.send yourself a message with a file: link
2.click the link
3.try bookmark this link and opening bookmark too



Expected Results:  
Opened file or given a message.



If it is a security risk, I think it would be nice to be warned but still given
the option of opening anyway. I want to send a work colleague a link to a
network mapped file which we both have access to.
