Firefox is set as default user, but Outlook (from Office 2000) uses Internet
Explorer to open hyperlinks from HTML mails. ALWAYS!
If the email is not in HTML format (Rich, plain text}, it is OK, Firefox open.

I tried everything (use setbowser utility, set File Types Option for every file
with similar to HTML, URL, ..., even registry Edit), but without success.
