LWE10047 : Howto change the Mailto on a windows system

Symptom:

The mail program you use does not open when you click on a mail address in your browser

Cause:

Wrong configuration of the mailto parameter in the registry

Solution:

To change the mailclient you prefer, you have to set a parameter in the registy. This parameter is of type REG_EXPAND_SZ which means that you cannot easily read it after an export.
You open the registry and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto\shell\open\command and correct the setting to the one you want. e.g. "c:\programme\mutt\mutt.exe" %1

When you export this it looks like:

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,\
