When i use an external e-mail client, is there a way to tell navigator
to launch this program, when i click on a 'mailto:' link?

Get Eudora Lite and run it concurrently with Navigator standalone.
Eurdora Lite automatically starts when you click a "mailto" link in
Navigator.

Have your external e-mail client minimized and it would add the
To:  header in your e-mail program.

Question:

                         How do I configure Netscape Navigator to work with
other mail programs such as Eudora
                         or Microsoft Outlook?

                         Answer:

                         In Navigator versions 4.03 and above, you can
configure Navigator to invoke external MAPI
                         mail clients such as Eudora or Outlook, or other
mail clients that understand the Simple
                         MAPI protocol. Navigator does not support any MAPI
commands outside the Simple
                         MAPI protocol. While this has been tested with the
Microsoft Exchange 5.0 client, it has
                         not been tested with any more recent versions and
may not be compatible.

                         This procedure only works for Microsoft Windows 95,
98, and NT for standalone
                         Navigator, and does not work for Communicator.
Note: since Communicator 4.5 does not
                         come in a standalone Navigator format, this will
not work with Communicator 4.5x.

                         To check if you are using a standalone version of
Navigator 4.0x, go to the Help menu and
                         choose About Navigator. If the window says
Navigator 4.08, you can use this procedure. If
                         the window says Communicator (any version) or
Navigator 4.07 or earlier, you will need to
                         download the latest standalone version of Navigator
from
                         http://home.netscape.com/download, remove your
current Navigator or Communicator
                         installation, and install the new version you just
downloaded. As of this writing, Navigator
                         4.08 is the most recent standalone version of
Navigator presently available.

                         Enabling the Third-Party Mail Client

                         To enable third-party client functionality in
Microsoft Windows, you must configure the
                         Netscape Navigator preferences file, prefs.js,
which by default is located at
                         C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users\Default\prefs.js.

                         In this file, you must set the following four
preferences. The first sets the intention to use
                         third-party mail to True; the second names the MAPI
DLL to use; the third and fourth set
                         your mail servers. Open the prefs.js file in a text
editor such as Notepad and add the
                         following lines to the bottom of the file:

                         user_pref("mail.use_altmail", true);
                         user_pref("mail.altmail_dll", "navmapi32.dll");
                         user_pref("network.host.pop_server",
"YOUR_POP_SERVER_NAME");
                         user_pref("network.host.smtp_server",
"YOUR_SMTP_SERVER_NAME");

                         Note: Be sure to replace YOUR_POP_SERVER_NAME with
the name of your POP mail
                         server and YOUR_SMTP_SERVER_NAME with the name of
your SMTP mail server. You
                         should also make sure that your mail program is
configured as your default MAPI client.

                         Navigator 4.03 and higher ship with a file called
navmapi32.dll. This DLL allows use of
                         Simple MAPI compliant 3rd party mail programs (i.e.
Eudora, Outlook, etc.) with
                         Navigator. The default location of this file is
C:\Program
                         Files\Netscape\Program\navmapi32.dll. If you wish,
you can write your own
                         DLL using the Navigator Third Party Mail and News
SDK available on
                         developer.netscape.com and use it instead of the
provided DLL. Once you have written
                         your DLL, substitute the name of your DLL for
navmapi32.dll. Note that if you set
                         mail.use_altmail to "true", you must set the
mail.altmail_dll preference.
                         Otherwise, third-party mail handling defaults to
navmapi32.dll.

                         Using a MAPI mail client

                         Once you have configured Navigator to use a third
party MAPI client, you can open a
                         message composition window provided by the client
in one of these two ways. In
                         Navigator:

                              Choose "Send Page" from the File menu
                              Click a "mailto:" URL (uniform resource
locator) or enter this URL in the Location
                              field in the Navigator toolbar.

If you want to use Pegasus as your mail client with
Netscape, use NSProto for Pegasus Netscape link
http://www.aimnet.com/~jnavas/winpmail/#NsProto

I understand it may work with other mail programs also.
