Hey! Another issue. Both a friend of mine on the Mac (OS 10.2) and me on my Win2K box have an issue with Mozilla's mail and news. It continuously ignores our "default mail program." Mine is Eudora. If I have Mail installed, and click on a mailto link, it ALWAYS opens in Mozilla Mail. Now, this leads me to just not install Mail and News, but I enjoy using Mozilla for Newsgroups, so I'd prefer to just have a Preference to turn it off. Neither of us know what to do. Anyone else with this issue?

:mrgreen: THanks a ton, man! That's helpful! I'll get right on that, and forward it to my Mac-using friend.

Still, I think to appeal to non-expert, non-forum-using, IE-brainwashed normal folks, perhaps it may be wise to consider adding this to the Preferences menu. I think it'd be a pretty common option.

Couldn't agree more with you. Since Mozilla is about giving users a choice (at least it is to me), why not give them a choice which email program to use?
