Send to mail recipient

When I right click on a file in Explorer and select "send to" and "mail
recipient" it brings up Netscape 7.1 instead of Eudora. Even though I
continue to select Netscape as not being my default mail handler, it still
does so. In Control Panel/Internet Options/Programs, Eudora is selected. In
Netscape Properties, Netscape is not selected.

Other than not bringing up the proper mail handler, everything works ok.

How can I get the send to/mail handler to be Eudora?

Re: Send to mail recipient

One other place to check that your default email software is Eudora: control
panel, Add/remove programs. In the left column click on set program access
and defaults. (there may also be a shortcut to that on your start menu).

This may not seem intuitive, but look in Internet Explorer, under Tools,
Internet Options, Programs, and change the setting for E-Mail. You'll
probably see there that it is currently Netscape.

Another option:

Right-click on the Taskbar, and choose Properties. In the "Start Menu" tab, click the "Customize" button corresponding the "Start menu" radio button. In the next screen, select "Eudora" from the E-Mail drop-down listing.

Re: Send to mail recipient

Thank you for your responses. Problem solved!! Here is how it worked out:

Program access and defaults in Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs was set to
"use my current e-mail program".

Internet Explorer/Tools/Internet Options/Programs was set to "Eudora".

Taskbar/Properties/Start Menu was originally set to the "Classic Start Menu"
position, so there was no drop down menu. Changing it to the "Start Menu"
position resulted in a drop down menu which showed Netscape as the default
mail handler. Changing it to "Eudora" solved the problem.

Thanks again.

None of these fixes worked for me, I'm afraid. Still no response from Send To > Mail Recipient in Windows Explorer XP or from File > Send > Page by Email in IE6.

Does anyone have other ideas? I'm using Lotus Notes.

Thanks
Adam
