Mozilla is my default email client.
In any .CHM help file, when I click on an email link, Outlook express windows
open instead of Mozilla mail one.
When I uninstall OE, the following message appears: "Impossible d'effectuer
cette opération car le client de messagerie n'est pas installé correctement".

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Mozilla as default email client
2.Invalid msimn.exe file by renaming it
2.open a chm file with an email adress 
3.click on the email adress

Actual Results:  
1/ if msimn.exe is valid then the OE compose message windows opens
2/ if msimn.exe is not valid then a message box appears 

Expected Results:  
the mozilla compose windows would have opened
