Default E-mail

I use Firefox and when I get an e-mail I want to click on the message and have it open up in firefox ... but it will only open up with IE ... it never did this with XP and now I have Vista... I have changed all settings to Firefox for default but nothing changes. Anyone had this problem and knows how to fix it?

Which email? Are we talking a type of webmail (Yahoo, Gmail) or a POP account?

I think default is that it will open up in IE. Never found a way to change it.

I have the same problem with MSN Messenger.
