Mozilla Firefox email set up?

  Daibus 08:39 12 Nov 2004

When I access the "Read Mail" icon in Mozilla Firefox, for some reason MSN Explorer comes up, not my default email, Outlook Express, which is accessed via my other Browsers problem.

Any ideas how I can reset this icon in Firefox to open OE?

I'm not sure if there's anyway to do it I thought it just opened the default mail client,to set default go to internet options programmes and set it to what you use.

Cheers for your reply but OE has been set as my default mail server.

Any more ideas would be gratefully accepted.

Good on you mate.

Sorry to seem thick, but as an aside to this problem, is there a way of getting visual notification on firefox of when new mail arrives in outlook express, or will that only happen with thunderbird working alongside firefox?
