Windows 7: Mailto protocol missing

The reg edit worked for me. I have been looking HIGH and LOW for a solution to this problem. All problems seem to be related to XP or Vista and not 7.

Clicking a mailto link opened 50-75 instances of IE and not my default client Outlook 2003.

Thanks!

Hope this helps,

Just to say this worked for me. Thanks.

Thank you from Brasil.

I scrolled all the way to the bottom, and there is no "mail to" listed. Nowhere. I am trying to use Yahoo, not that I love it, but it's what I ended up with, and it is simple, like me. Do not like WLM.

Post #4 of this thread explains how to make it listed, if it's not there.
