If user.js still works with SM 2, set the preferences there instead of
using about:config.  With SM 1.1.x, this is a text file.  Whatever
installed default setting SeaMonkey has for a preference, user.js
overrides it.

The format is
        user_pref("network.protocol-handler.expose.mailto", true);
The semi-colon at the end is required; many users forget it and then
wonder why it doesn't work.  Making this work also requires completely
terminating SeaMonkey and then restarting it.
