"Read Mail" button takes me to Hotmail compose instead of Inbox

On the IE toolbar, there is an icon for "Read Mail and "Send new message".
The action is dependant on your default mail program as defined in IE
options. I have defined Hotmail as the default. The problem I am having is
that when I click "Read Mail" icon, it takes me to Hotmail but brings me
into my compose box rather than my inbox. The Send New Message button does
the exact same thing as well. Is there a registry mod to change the
direction of this link? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for your input. I do not have Outlook installed. I have OE. I
don't see any OE options which relate to the "Mail" icon on the toolbar of
IE, or any settings for that matter which would affect the navigational
characteristics of those buttons. Where in the world did you hear that
Hotmail works off the settings in Outlook?

Hullo, slightly off topic but I can't seem to change the 'read email' setting from outlook to hotmail. How did you do it?

Thanks
