    Actually it is partially working here. If I click on an email link at a website, WM handles it. If I open an email on my desktop, notepad opens it. I set it to notepad originally as it was a way to read them while on the desktop. I still can't select WM anywhere to try to associate it with .eml files.

    Gary have you tried removing the registry addition, running a reg cleaner and re applying the reg file ?

    It is definitely working correctly here. If I click a link in firefox, Win Mail opens, also the right click 'send to' option works correctly, opens win mail to send attachments or the resize option to send a picture.

    Also the options in control panel are active to set Windows Mail as default.

    Wish I could help more, not being able to use win mail correctly before the addition of the reg file was one of my pet hates.

    I have installed Office 2007 Pro. So I have set up Outlook as my email. I imported all but 5 of my contacts with no problems. :) I'd still go back to WM if they activate it in 7. I liked it and had few problems with it.

    Hello everyone, especially Gary,

    Maybe a little late with responding, but until now I didn't have the answer.
    I have been having exactly the same problem as Gary did.
    Not being able to attach the .eml files to Windows Mail.
    Everything else worked (thanks to this forum and especially Mr. Grim ), but that.

    I've used FileTypeEditor. Which you can download here:
    http://www.sapien.com/download.aspx?file=filetyp
    Searched for the .eml files. Opened it and selected Verbs.
    Then clicked on Add Open...
    Copied and pasted
    "C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\winmail.exe" /eml:%1
    into it.
    Then I also clicked on Add Edit...
    Copied and pasted exactly the same into this one.

    Now Windows Mail is also an option, when you click on Open with...

    I hope it works for you too.

    You can get Windows Mail to run in Win 7.

    But only if you install Win 7 as an upgrade over the top of Vista.

    You will then find the Windows Mail program still exists but the WinMail. exe file has be zapped. Sorry, disabled.

    If you have Vista on another drive , just copy over the exe to your desktop and it should work.

    Another way is to save a copy of WinMail.exe in some location before you install Win 7 and use this to replace the disabled one.

    You don't need to upgrade to get it to work, you just need to have the Vista files to replace the ones in Seven and I made a tutorial for this Months ago here. Windows Mail
