    I use Earthlink Mailbox as my email client on Windows 7. After installing Thunderbird the default program for MAILTO is Thunderbird. I want to change it back to Earthlink Mailbox. When I go to Default Programs / Associate a file type or protocol with a program and select MAILTO protocol (at the bottom of the list), I do not see Earthlink Mailbox in the list of programs. There appears to be no way to add a program to the list. So I cannot make Earthlink Mailbox the default for this protocol. Is there any way to make Earthlink Mailbox the default program for MAILTO protocol?

    Try this: in TB, go to Tools, Options, Advanced. On the General page, make sure "Always check to see if Thunderbird is the default mail client on startup" is unchecked.
