I use Windows Live Messenger in conjunction with an e-mail address issued in the msn.com domain.

it. Familiar to all of us I'm sure...
I have recently experimented with the Windows Live Mail desktop client and I now find that, when I click the above-mentioned
button in Messenger, I am taken to Windows Live Mail to view my message there (rather than the traditional web-based Windows Live
For a number of reasons - I would prefer to NOT use Windows Live Mail to view my e-mail messages (by default) and would like to
continue to view them using in web-based Hotmail. (It's lighter-weight, familiar & quick.)
My Question: Is it possible to revert back to using web-based Hotmail, without uninstalling Windows Live Mail? I tried editing
my Windows Live Mail configuration to remove my msn.com email account, but the program still gets launched when I click the e-mail
button in Messenger. (I still want to use Windows Live Mail for its other features - RSS feeds & newsgroups, mainly).
I have been through all the Messenger settings; and haven't found one for this. I half expect someone's will tell me I have to
edit something directly in the Windows Registry. I'm good with that...
Thanks in advance for knowledgeable responses.
