As others have mentioned, this is more a question of configuring your
browser than anything involving python.

That said, those links on a web page that open an email window are
called "mailto" links.  A google search for "open mailto links in
gmail" (without the quotes) gets a bunch of general information, and
if you add your wife's browser of choice to the search terms, you
should get some explicit instructions for setting everything up
properly.
