Very srange, since Mozilla Mail does. Maybe the URL protocol helper for
"news:" is broken?

I use portable Thunderbird for news so it is not registered in the
registry as my news reader. When I clicked your link Microsoft Mail
tried to open it because that is what is registered on my system for
news but I only use that for Mail and not news. You should not assume
everyone has their PC configured the same as you.

Now it's my fault that you didn't set it up properly... "news:" is one of
the few well known protocol handlers which one may safely assume to be working.

Even further, it's the standard way of referencing Usenet postings. Even
further, there simply is no other.

On Windows it should be HKCR\news, entitled as "URL:News Protocol" and "URL
Protocol", and the "open" shell verb gives the handler.

However, it is well known that both Thunderbird and Mozilla Mail don't set
this properly when installed and running without admin privileges, so you
have to do it manually.
