Author/Date Default E-mail Client

Need help with another problem.

I have set Scribe as my default e-mail client in IE5 and have checked registry entry:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/MAILTO/SHELL/OPEN/COMMAND and it shows

c:scribescribe.exe /m "%1"

When I click on an e-mail link, it brings up Scribe, as it should, ready to enter outgoing message.

The problem is, clicking on IE5, Mail, Read Mail, does nothing. With Outlook Express set as a default, doing the same thing brings up Outlook Express.

Is there something else that needs to be set?

Thanks.

Hi BEM,

As far as I can tell, you might want to check your default options under M$ Internet Explorer. I don't know for sure about IE5, but with IE6, menu option Extra, Internet Options, you will find a tab named Programs. Here you can set your default emailclient, mailreader, etc.
Hope this answers your question.
Regards,

I'm not familiar with M$ Internet Options.

I'm using Windows 95 with IE5.

I did find one thing about my system. If I set Outlook Express as my default e-mail, I then have a URL:MailTo Protocol under Windows Explorer/Options/File Types. If I set Scribe as my default e-mail, the URL:MailTo Protocol is missing. Perhaps this is problem area?

Still looking for solution.
