default email setting for IE7
in Firefox they have in Tools->Options->Applications->Mail to, in
which I can specify my at&t webmail. I suppose Firefox is picking up the
webmail page from the registry.
When a link like "Reply to:" in craigslist is clicked, my webmail email page
comes up and if I've already logged in, an email will be started already
with the destination email address inserted.

Is there any simple/direct way to config this in IE7? Right now, the
webmail
option is not listed in the picklist for Tools->Internet
Options->Programs->Email
Only client mail programs are shown and IE7 seems to have no awareness of
webmail on the machine.

att&t/yahoo tech support is saying that I must use their toolbar or their
version of IE to have that option available.
I don't want extra toolbars and I'm hoping to be able to set up other
machines quickly for this. Everyone I deal with doesn't want to mess with
client email programs.

Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) when
posting to this newsgroup.

> Is there any simple/direct way to config this in IE7?


A qualified No: If (and only if) the account is an AT&T/Yahoo account (i.e.,
if you access web-mail on a yahoo.com page), you can install Yahoo Messenger
and then enable an option to make Yahoo Mail the default.

Re: default email setting for IE7
Several machines I've tried were XPsp3

That's kind of surprising.
I guess my best option will be to have everyone's machines
default to Firefox.
The main thing I need to figure out how to do quickly is
to make the favorites/bookmarks look the same to the user.

thanks
bill

Re: default email setting for IE7
To change the "Default Email Program" open the registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail]

and replace the "Default" value with the name of the subkey
that you want to use. If it's empty, tell me which email you
want to use.

AFAIK IE has no such function.

Re: default email setting for IE7
You'll lose some functionality, like being able to include the subject that
is sometimes built into mailto: links, but the following registry edit will
cause IE to go to yahoo mail when you click a mail to link. Paste the text
into notepad & save it as yahoomail.reg Double click to merge the file.

**********start copy below*****************
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell]
@="webmail"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\webmail]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\webmail\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe\"
http://mail.yahoo.com"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\webmail\ddeexec]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\webmail\ddeexec\App lication]

Re: default email setting for IE7
How to set "Yahoo! Mail" as your default E-mail client:


If you don't have the file "ymmapi.dll" in Yahoo's installation folder:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Common\


You can get it here:
ymmapi.dll 176 KB
http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-.../download.html

That one is version 2004.11.23.1

This one is older 2002.1.28.1:
http://us.dl1.yimg.com/download.yaho...als/ymmapi.dll

And this one is even older 2001.7.3.1:
http://download.yahoo.com/dl/installs/ymail/ymmapi.dll

Once it's in its place, merge the file "registry.reg" into the registry.
(double-click or right-click-->merge)


Now you can open IE and go to 'Tools-->Internet Options-->Programs'
and set Yahoo as default.


You can download this help file, "registry.reg" and "ymmapi.dll" from here:
