Thursday, May 22, 2008 1:47 AMIn the past when I had live messenger open and clicked the icon showing the number of new messages in my box, my email opened WITHIN IE web mail. Now it opens the 'Windows Live Mail' program.
I installed the live mail program just to use if sending a message via a link opened my Outlook Express, otherwise I would use hotmail within IE as webmail. As OE is no longer going to support the Hotmail client, I installed Live Mail. However when opening mail via live messenger I would prefer it to open within internet explorer, but I am at a loss on how to do this, Within Tools/Options I have OE set as default mail program, (Someone else whos less adjustable to changes uses OE and has the sole ISP default email) I have tried tweaking to different things including Live Hotmail, hoping that would open my hotmail window, but I can not stop Live Mail from opening instead.
I prefer to just use webmail for my email experience, and hope theres an answer here.
Thanks in advance for everyones help!

The diffrerence is that on the computer person 1 uses Windws Live Messenger, and person 2 has and uses Thunderbird as e-mail client.
So now when person 1 clicks e-mail in Messenger, Thunderbird for person 2 opens.
What a ***; and indeed unconfigurable.
Did you already find a solution?

Backup Reg, and Del the Reg and then try to use the Icon on the Windows Live Messenger.

Tried this one but the buttons for 'stop signing in' is locked out, as is the 'make default'.
Anyone have any other suggestions?
