I use to have Lotus Notes (4.6) set as my default mail program in Internet Explorer (I have IE5, I am using Windows 95). I had to reformat, now IE wont let me pick Lotus Notes as the default mail program. I have reinstalled Lotus Notes and IE hoping that it pick it up in the Internet Options / Programs menu. But it hasnt.

I'm not a Notes expert, and our mail is setup differently, but I'm making an effort to understand what you are asking - are you saying that when you open IE5, and click on Tools, Internet Options, Programs,  and click on E-mail that there is not a choice for Lotus Notes mail?

If you reloaded the Client software, it is possible that there may be a combo template MAILC46.NTF you may also need in order to use both the Notes Client and the IE browser to access your mail.

That is correct.
I searched for MAILC46.NTF and I dont have it. I do have MAIL46.NTF.

With Lotus Notes V5.0X and IE5, you have 2 parameters to adjust :

A) Lotus Notes :
Menu : files - Preferences - user's preference - additionnal options : you must check  "activare MS Office 97 send to Notes"

B)  IE5 :
Menu : Tools - Internet Options -Programs - choose  Lotus Notes mail

Hello swinslow,

All u need to do is reinstall IE with "custom" option. Then select everything except the multilingual option. Hope this will solve ur problem. Its an IE installation problem.

To Swinslock :  
Lotus Notes is listed in Tools - Internet Options when you check  "activate MS Office 97 send to Notes"

-> But you have Lotus 4.6 and i have Lotus 5.01.

WELLL ... I finally got it to work. I found a registry setting that took care of it. If anyone would like it to know it is hkey_local_machine\software\clients\mail then I created the key Lotus Notes.
