    Hi --

    I am using Outlook 2000 and am trying to configure it to achieve this:

    When I click on a mailto: link at a site, Outlook is set as my default email client, so it automatically activates when I click the email link. However, it does not open up a blank new email template. Almost defeating the purpose since I have to then copy and paste the address from the site.

    How do I get Outlook to set up a blank new email template with the to: address filled in from the mailto: link at a site?! Again, all it does now is activate the Outlook 2000 program.

    Thanks for any help.

    Josh

    Sounds like a problem with your Outlook 2000 installation, since it is normally supposed to open up a new message. Try reinstalling Outlook 2000 and that should fix your problem

    Your problem is simply Outlook 2000 is not configured to be your default e-mail client. To fix this in IE, go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs > and change the default e-mail clients to Outlook, from whatever you have there now.

    No, Outlook IS my default email and this is why the issue is even more perplexing:

    When I click on a mailto: link, Outlook does maximize itself, BUT DOESN'T open a new email template with the address filled in...
