    Unfortanately, I am forced to use Outlook here at work but my mailto captures still default to Eudora 6.0. How do I change the default mail program to open Outlook when clicking on mailto links in a webbrowser?

    Thanks,
    Jay

    If you are using Internet Explorer, try this, Jay:
    Tools menu, Internet Options, Programs tab, click the dropdown for 'E-mail:' to see if Microsoft Outlook is available for selecting.

    I use Netscape with bits and pieces of IE5. However, I think I found the correct setting in the Control Panel (Win2K)

    Control Panel->Internet Options

    Then go to the "Programs" tab and look for the pull-down menu for "Email" and I changed that from Netscape to "outlook"
