I have a raster projected on EPSG:3857 with QGIS. I have image registration in Mapinfo but there is no projection for EPSG:3857.
Do you know the projection that I need to use?

Popular Mercator was added in MapInfo Professional 9.5.1, so the coordinate system should be there.
We might have used a different EPSG code in v9.5.1. I do recall some fuzz about changing the EPSG code.
Anyway, in the list "Projections of the World" you should find the "Popular Visualization" coordinate system/projection.
That's the one you are looking for.
If it's missing in your projection file, you can open your projection file in a text editor and add these two lines:
"Popular Visualization CRS\p3857", 10, 157, 7, 0 "Popular Visualization CRS\p900913", 10, 157, 7, 0
We have them twice because people use at least two different EPSG-code for this projection.
If you don't know where to locate your projection file, you can ask MapInfo Pro. Open the MapBasic window, type the statement below and hit Enter on the keyboard:
Print "MapInfow.prj: " + LocateFile$(6)
I have previously heard about people using the WorkGroup option in MapInfo Professional and in the WorkGroup folder also having a configuration file such as the menu file (MapInfow.mnu) and so not seeing the features added with a new release of MapInfo Professional. Maybe this is what is causing this issue with you!?
Update the 9.5 version to 9.5.1 is needed
