I wouldn't mind use Netscape for mail if I were using netscape for
browsing.  I don't really use OE for mail usually, anyway.  Only 1 thing
goes there, and that is spam reports.  However, I wanted to set it up so
that occasional mailto: links would be handled in a clean, efficient way.
I reinstalled IE/OE to no avail.  I am at the latest patch level.  I could
uninstall Netscape, but the problem would seem to lie in IE itself, as it
can see Netscape and Lotus Notes, but not its old friend, OE.

If it comes to it, I'll do the uninstall of Netscape, but, for now, it's
more of an annoyance than a problem.
