Pat, i found this article that might help ya:

The problem with Windows 7 is that the registry
is finally
protected. Eudora (by default) doesn't run privileged, and therefore can't change the registry. But it also doesn't set up the hooks that Windows 7 needs to know it can be set as a default mail program. [For some strange reason, MAILTO isn't listed
as a protocol either - which means that you can't use that method.]
The solution is to right click on the Eudora.exe program icon and select "Run as administrator." You will then need to okay that when the UAC prompt asks if it's
okay.
Eudora will complain as it starts about not being the default. Tell it it's okay
to make it the default. It will then continue to start normall.
After that, it should no longer need any special privilege, but it will work correctly, not complain, and it will be launched as it should be anytime you click on a Mailto:
link in an HTML page.

hope that does it for you!
