How to make smb:// links open directly in Finder?

October 11Hits:0

Hello,
When I click on an afp or ftp link (such as ftp://abcd.defg.com/xyz/ or afp://mac.local/xyz/), in my emails (Eudora), the request is transmitted to the Finder, and I end up with a window opened in the /xyz/ folder.
This is the case because the email client is informed to do so with these links.
However, when I click on an smb:// link (to reach a folder on a PC), then Safari is chosen be default, and can't do much more than opening a window with an error message, of course.
When I try to change this, the email client asks for a program to do smb (Finder I suppose), but then, Finder is a strange software. It is there:
/System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app
But when I try to tell Eudora to take is as the app for smb:// links, its icon is grayed, looking like a document and not an app (when all other apps are recognised as such).
How can I solve this?
It would be VERY usefull for my co-workers to be able to go directly to an smb mount from their email message.
Thank you,

Rick,
Sorry about the misgiving adresses, folders and access rights. My question is not about these three (they were just here to tell the story). You're perfectly right to say that in a local network, there's not need to complete the full IP or ".com" name of the PCs (even if it works all the same).
When I said "of course" for the perms, it was just to mean, in the same way, that it's not this kind of problems here.
My question is much more a human/mac graphic interface problem than a network problem. I want the people (as well as myself) to be able to go in a folder on the pc network with a simple click on an smb link in an email message (as they do now on an ftp or afp link).
Thanks for the bother,
