    I was recently forced to install M$ Outlook on my PC in order to sync to
    my PPC device. However, despite the fact I have given the hateful
    software no control over my email, and there are no accounts set up, it
    has become the default mail program if I click on a <mailto:> link in
    firefox. Anyone know hwy this is and what I can do to make thunderbird
    open when I click on said links????

    Anyone with ideas on ho I can use a PPC device without having to use M$
    Lookout would be my friend for ever!

    Cheers
