I use Thunderbird, right. Whenever I open a mailto:, Thunderbird opens. In the pref panel of Mail, I observe even it knows Thunderbird is the daddy. So why the hell, when I click 'email' on the iPhoto Useless Bar(tm) does it tell me I have 'no mail accounts configured for Mail'... I don't use Mail! - I got seriously vexed when that happened, because I was trying to show my partner how easy things were. I don't know whether I'm asking for a solution (if there is one), or just shouting. Apple will certainly be getting a 'suggestion' from this.
