Yes. I'm using Opera as browser and email client.

I've copied into MSword and libreoffice editor. In MSWord only first  
message was
recognized as link, in libreoffice first and second. Third one seems to be  
to long.

Althouh they are marked as link, ctrl+click over them just moves Opera to  
front if its already opened, but no new message windows appears. If Opera  
is closed, it is opened and a message window is created.

This key doesn't exist in my system. Under ...\Shell just have
AttachmentExecute, BagMRU, Bags and LocalizedResourceName.

"D:\Archivos de programa\Opera\Opera.exe" "%1" (Archivos de programa means
Program Files)

If you want I test anything else, just tell me.

Thank you,
