Sending email from a Website using Internet Explorer 3.0

Before installing Netscape 3.0, I was able to send email
from Web sites using Netscape 2.01 and Internet Explorer 3.01.  Now I can only send email from a Web page (by, for example, clicking on an email address) using Netscape 3.0.
Using Internet Explorer 3.01, attempting to send mail from a Web page by clicking on an email address brings up a MS Exchange profiles box and a subsequent message that mail can't be sent using this program.  So, how can I disable Microsoft Exchange here (I use MS Exchange for faxing) and
what settings do I need to enter to be able to send mail
from a Web site using IE?  (Please give step-by-step instructions when answering this question!)  Of course, I want to be able to keep this function when I use Netscape 3.0!  I should add that I have no problems using Internet Explorer's mail program to send and receive mail the regular way; this problem only occurs when I try to send email from a Web site.

I run Windows 95.

make sure IE is set as your default email program using mail/options/send from within the mail program and check box making it your default.
