Yep, there are some "predefined" mailto options, notably what ever the
"native MS supplied email client" is and a few webmail sites.  

It appears that if I used linux, there's a way to specify options, but
not in windows.  I tried the 
 "c:\blah blah blah\sylpheed.exe --compose $1"
idea but it says that's not a valid executable.

I added the reg file (in fact, already had) but there doesn't appear to
be a "use the program I've picked as default email client" option. 

Again, it's an firefox problem, so I guess I'll head over there and see
if anyone over there as a solution...

If I find out how, I'll report back here.
