Yes, it is a regression. I spent quite a lot of time finding a simple
useful solution before (the one that is broken now).

It was a w32 only solution so I guess it has been broken by someone
who does not understand the general nature of the OS interface.

No, the mail client has nothing to do with it. The solution was
general enough to use any mail client on w32.
