    toolbar - mail option (7)

    Sorry if this question has been answered, I'm new here I couldn't find this anywhere. In IE6 there was a button that gave you the option to open a new message from the IE window (the envelope button with the down-arrow). This was great for opening a new message when I still wanted to be able to see my IE window. In IE7 all I can find is the "read mail" button that switches you to your email program, which isn't nearly as useful. Am I missing something or is the new message option gone now?

    Make a shortcut with the target
    mailto:
    and put that on the Links bar.
