Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-AT; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-AT; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826

I have installed Mozilla parallel to MS-IE6 SP1 for testing. Outlook-Express is
the standard mail handler. This works fine with Mozilla 1.1 (German-Austrian
version). As soon as I am installing Mozilla 1.2.1 (filename:
"mozilla-win32-1.2.1-installer.exe") it grabs the standard mail handling from
Outlook Express for 2 specific items: "Send Page through eMail" and "Send Link
through eMail" out of the IE6 file menu, although Outlook Express ist the
standard mail handler. This does not happen with Mozilla 1.1 which I am
currently using.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start IE6
2. File - Send - Send Page 
or
3. File - Send - Send Link

Actual Results:  
Mozilla Mail opened instead of Outlook Express which is set as standard mail
handler.

Expected Results:  
Nothing.

I think this is a problem of registry entries during Mozilla setup, not a
problem of Mozilla itself.

Rajiv, are you aware of that?

Mozilla will set itself up as the systemwide MAPI client if it is selected as 
the "default mail program."  (It does not configure itself as the systemwide 
'mailto' handler; see bug 141965.)  Preferences|Mail&Newsgroups has the checkbox 
for Mozilla-as-default-mailer; unchecking it should restore the previous 
default.

Frieder Engel, please verify this on your system.
