url:mailto protocol (W98SE I5.5)
i run w98 & Office2K
my system was setup with Outlook as the default mail program in IE (5.5)
But if i click a "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" link it opened up in Outlook Express.
Someone suggested i need to change the file association for the url:mailto protocol.
No Problem [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] went to Windows Explorer found the file associations and changed the program it pointed to to Outlook.exe easy right?
Default outlook doesnt understand the request.
I tried putting a switch at the end of the program line so Outlook opens with a new mail message
the switch is "/c ipm.note" as documented by Woody re XP in last newsletter.
This works fine on a shortcut on the desktop opening a blank message but i cant add it to the end of the command line in file associations and I cant point the file association to a shortcut.
Even if this did work wouldn't it just open a new BLANK mail message?
OK - i hope this makes some sense.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
