I'd like to set Thunderbird (2.x) to be the default mail client using a command line argument.

Firefox has an option to do this for the browser:
firefox.exe -silent -nosplash -setDefaultBrowser

And I've tried similar things for Thunderbird, to no avail. I still get the dialog coming up which requires me to click.

Any ideas or pointers? Google and mozillazine aren't helping.

Thanks,
Greg.

Hi Gregory,
i see :-)
I am afraid, my 3 1/2 weeks trip to Down Under back in 99 was to short to pick this one up...
Have fun.

LOL...perhaps you need to endure, as we do here in the UK, the unrelenting storm of Australian soap operas on your TV.
