Email Is Not Configured Propertly

Wow...just when I thought I had seen everything...

When I open Mailwasher Pro (ver. 7.5) and click on REPLY to reply to an email WITHOUT processing it through MWP, IE continues to open browser windows until I have to reboot! NOTHING stops this from happening and I am able to duplicate it with ease. I don't even use IE (I'm a Firefox man) so this is even more perplexing. I have checked for malware and I have no other issues except with how MWP replies from within. I usually just wash the mail and reply from within, but since I have emails on more than one computer, I like to reply from within until I can get back on my main computer.

Any thoughts?

It's your MailTo settings:

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations

Select MaiTo and set it up the way you want.

Thanks Sidewinder,

That did not work as I had already had it set up. I just did a reinstall and that seems to have fixed the problem for now. Something must have gotten corrupted along the lines. MWP is an awesome program!!! Thanks for the suggested fix.

Well, I "thought" that I had fixed this problem when trying to reply to emails from withing MWP. However, I still had the problem of dozens and dozens of IE windows opening (even though I was using Firefox)! The exact error that I got was: "Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed". I ONLY got this from replying from within MPW...no other programs caused this.

I finally got fed up with CTRL ALT DEL attempts to close all of those IE windows! I found this page: http://web4.uwindsor.ca/its/faq/id/534 and I used the .reg and it totally fixed my issue. So...if anyone else has this problem, here ya go! I hope that it helps.
