Symptom

Das übliche Mailprogramm startet nicht, wenn man auf einen Mail - Link klickt.

Cause

Fehlkonfiguration des "mailto" Parameter in der Registry

Solution

Für den Mailclient der Wahl setzen Sie den richtigen Registry Parameter. Dieser Schlüssel ist vom Typ REG_EXPAND_SZ und somit in einer exportierten .REG-Datei schlecht lesbar (s.u.).
Tragen Sie den mailto-Client im folgenden Registry Schlüssel ein:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto\shell\open\command

und korrigieren die Einstellung auf die gewünschte (z.B. "c:\programme\mutt\mutt.exe" %1)

Als Registry export (.REG file) würde dieser Schlüssel wie folgt aussehen:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto\shell\open\command]
@=hex(2):22,00,63,00,3a,00,5c,00,70,00,72,00,6f,00,67,00,72,00,61,00,6d,00,6d,\
  00,65,00,5c,00,6d,00,75,00,74,00,74,00,5c,00,6d,00,75,00,74,00,74,00,2e,00,\
  65,00,78,00,65,00,22,00,20,00,25,00,31,00,00,00
