I want to use MS Outlook whenever I click on a mailto link in a web page.  There is a file type called URL:MailTo Protocol.  What is the command to use with this type? Ive tried using "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /c ipm.note

But outlook complains that the switch I am using is not correct.

"D:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OUTLOOK.EXE" -c IPM.Note /m "%1"

is the entire string you need to pass..

If you are using IE, choose: VIEW-->INTERNET OPTIONS-->PROGRAMS--> and choose Outlook from the drop down menus... This should work for you...
