I know to go to tools and programs and select the program I want to handle my default mail but I have MIE 6 and it only lists Outlook, Outlook Express and Hotmail. I want to add Yahoo mail in there too but how? I will edit the reg if someone can point the right way, or a different solution. I had Yahoo mail in my last MIE 5 brows,er and it was in my choices but this version doesnt see it or list it or whatever.
Thanks in Advance

I was researching to see if I could find something in the registry- which I might have. I searched for the tooltip- displayed when the mouse is over the Default E-ail Icon in XP (with the new start menu)- in the registry and found it in HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache The key data is "@explorer, -7005" If you what this means, please explain. I'm stumped about what it does.

Sorry Dugg and Raanank but no use. I dont know the reg entry and also the download suggested did not seem to work. I even re-started.
Anything else? Anyone??

Yahoo! is web mail. The only web mail account that will work is Hotmail. If you are using Yahoo! as POP3 - then the client is OE or Outlook. I would guess, something like Thunderbird or other would appear there if you use it. Yahoo! isn't a program.
