Fishbert,

I got that too, and I was annoyed, given that I don't even have Outlook Express on my system anymore (XP home SP1).

To change the program to Thunderbird, go to Tools/Folder Options/File Types, and change News: protocol from msimn.exe to thunderbird.

I did that, and it brings up Thunderbird now when I follow the link, but nothing happens other than that. I remember that Mozilla needed to be told to have an external mailto: at one point... is there something like this for news? Is there a command line better than "thunderbird <url>"?

Thanks, Frank
