One of the inconveniences of using Seamonkey, if you don't want to use the internal email, is that clicking on email links causes it to try to make you configure the internal email client. Is there a way to make Seamonkey automatically invoke an external email client?

Clicking on an email link tells the operating system to launch the default email client. That doesn't have to be SeaMonkey. ... windows-10

Set the about:config preference, network.protocol-handler.external.mailto, to 'true'.

Pardon me for the intrusion, but recall once when I had to use Outlook for a job and used that preference. Worked just fine, if you enjoy Outlook. Drove me right around the bend. <sigh>
