i have a weird issue where the Preferences > General > Default Email Reader keeps getting reset to some Windows program (i run Parallels and windows 7 on the laptop). i /think/ it keeps getting set to a windows program but in any case it is never Mac Mail which is sort of inconvenient.


has anyone heard of such a thing or know how to get this to stay on Mail?

    It's probably a Parallels setting.
