    how to designate a custom E-mail program as default mail


    Hi,


    I am using a dedicated (old but useful) software as mail client (Eudora).


    In Win7, it was possible to designate this software as default mail client (so that "mailto" in web pages will open it.


    In Win10, all I see as possibilities to designate a mail client are either "mail" (from Microsoft) or Google Chrome or Outlook desktop ... or to visit the Microsoft Store...


    How can I direct Win10 to look at and to use my Eudora (by pointing to where its is installed (c:\C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\Eudora\Eudora.exe) ?


    Can this be done from the Win10 graphic interface or do I need to do it by manipulating the registry

    (I can see one key pointing to the current default mail client: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\PackageRepository\Packages\Microsoft.Office.Desktop.Outlook_16051.11425.20244.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe\Microsoft.Office.Desktop.Outlook_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Outlook\windows.protocol\mailto) , but is this the only place and how should it be modified...).


    Best regards,

    :)

  2. I need a slick E-mail program!

    My parents are absolutely stonewall about keeping AOL. The best reason they can give me for keeping it is the easy to use E-mail interface. I ain't arguing, I haven't found anything easier to use, but it TAKES SO MUCH MEMORY! And so I'm thinking that if I can find something nice and easy to use, I might be able to get my parents to use it instead of AOL, and finally get the bloatware known as AOL off my computer! The requirements-
    • Must be easy to use
    • Can't be browser-based (so AIM mail, Yahoo, and MSN are no-no's)
    • Preferably compatible with AOL mail, my parents don't want to switch E-mail accounts
    • Can't be Mozilla Thunderbird...I tried it and it sucks in terms of multiple E-mail accounts, and it erased all my saved mail *Frown how to designate a custom E-mail program as default mail :(.
    Any ideas?
