    Email client won't open from web page email link in Win 7

    Recently switched from XP to Win 7, installed on a new SSD (XP still available on other HDD). In XP and using Opera (11.5, 12), I could click on an email link and my email client, Sylpheed, would open. In Win 7, that click returns a google "Internal communication error" page. My settings in Win 7, Opera and the email client are the same as in XP (see screenshots below). Any ideas where else to look?

    Looking at the Opera settings screenshot, someone in an Opera newsgroup wondered about the difference between what's showing as the default application, which supposedly comes from Windows. He thought they should be the same, but looking back at XP that's not the case (screenshot). Thanks,
