    Mailto Crashes (Mozilla Build 2002053012)

    I recently switched from Netscape to Mozilla Build 2002053012. When I click on a MAILTO tag, Mozilla starts loading copies of Internet Explorer (which I never, ever use). One single click on a MAILTO tag will keep copies of IE loading until I run out of resources. Netscape does not do this, it loads Eudora as it should. Any suggestions?

    Are you talking about a mailto tag on a web page somewhere? I just tried my Mozilla and it works just fine. Give me a link to a web page with a mailto link on it so I can check what you see. Mine seems to be OK and opens the Mozilla mail program just fine.

    It happens with any MAILTO tag. I 've double-checked them with Netscape and they worked fine so I know its a configuration problem on my machine. Since Netscape works fine, I know its a Mozilla problem but I can not find a single thing related to mail to configure. The help file mentions a newsreader and mail but I do not have then on my machine.

    Can't help - but noticed a similarity with this thread in Outlook which sadly does not appeared to be resolved yet.

    Can you post more info - operating system, MS Office software installed, etc.

    Speaking of which, Ronny, I assumed..... and you know what that means! Did you check Control Panel, Internet options and see what this screen looks like:

    No I didn't think to do so. I'm working late today but will do so tomorrow. I have also installed Mozilla at work from the same download and it works fine at work so I now know for sure that it is a configuration problem.

    I checked the control panel and the entry for mail was blank. Changing it to Eudora Lite fixed the problem. Thanks.
