I have a new windows 8 system on a machine that runs a php script to generate an email through the mailto: function.

I set Opera Mail up as my client and made it the default mail client.  I've tested it and it works.

When I execute the php script I'm given a choice of 3 destinations for the mailto:, none of them are Opera Mail.  

How do I direct this to Opera Mail?  Is there another client that would work better?

I'm sending the to:, subject:, from:, and body: segments.
