Tip & How-To about Mozilla SeaMonkey
I want to share the suggestion from Paul Pavlik to change the default email client to moxilla Thunderbird or your preferred.
"In the location bar, type "about:config" and press enter. If you get a scary-looking warning, just click past it. In the "filter" box at the top of the page enter "network.protocol-handler.external.mailto" (without quotes). If you get a result, then just double-click on it to change it true. If you don't, then right-click the pane and select new -> boolean. Give it a name of "network.protocol-handler.external.mailto" (without quotes) and set the value to true. Restart SeaMonkey (including QuickLaunch if you have it enabled) and try clicking a mailto link. "
The first time I clicked on a email address, I was queried for my email client and I was able to select Thunderbird.
This solved for me a long deferred non blocking but annoying problem.
