I don't get it. I just want to see Yahoo!Mail as a pull-down menu choice when I go IE8 -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Programs -> E-mail. I want to bring up Yahoo!Mail when I click on an email link in IE8. Instead I get the error message "Could not perform this operation because mail client is not properly installed"

If I go Start -> Programs -> Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options... -> File Types, I don't see URL: Email Protocol.

Is this because Yahoo!Mail is web-based email and it can't be done? If that's so, why can I do it with Hotmail when that's also web-based?
