anyone know anything about outlook express? When I try to reply to someone on my website this is the email service that pops up. I dont want to use this service does anyone know how to change it to yahoo or gmail?
It will not pop up the window to where i can just copy the email nor will it let me set up a connection at all so i need to change this because i have no way of responding to anyone that visits my site.
HELP! please and thank you
I get this too. All I do is right click the link instead of left-clicking it, and choose "Properties" - then I can see the email address and copy it. Then I open my yahoo account and send the email.
It is more fiddly so maybe the google toolbar is the way to go!
To change to gmail, ie make it auto pop up by default:
Apologies. The article above is not out yet.
Try these methods instead:
1. Get Google Talk, an IM by Google
2. Get Gmail Notifier
There are other ways like Google Toolbar as mentioned by Marisa above but I always stay away from toolbars which are a security concern. Also, you can tweak Firefox to do it but you will have to google for it.
I believe your solution is to tell your operating system to stop using outlook express as the default email service. The exact steps will depend on your OS...
I may have the steps if you use Windows XP or Vista...
I have been too lazy to fix this myself - I think somewhere in the past I made it my 'default' browser and need to go back and change it to Firefox.
Do you have another mail program on your computer other than outlook? If not you can get a free one here.
If you have two it will give you a choice of default.
Thunderbird is good. It is made by the same company as Firefox.
Thunderbird like outlook is not a browser, it is mail client software. It will also handle your gmail accounts if you want it too. Totally free, probably one of the best. Good luck!
I don't know for firefox, but for Chrome, there's an extension here:
https://chrome.google.com/extensions/de … ljbbgaiboc
that just replaces all mailto links in the document with gmail composition links.
There is probably a similar extension for firefox -- you'll have to do some browsing (tools --> add-ons).
I'm not sure if this was answered, so I'm adding:
You need to change your default setting for your email. Change it from OE (which I happen to love, by the way) to whatever it is that you use.
Use your help feature and search, "How to change default email address."
If you get the google toolbar, or the gmail windows notification program you should be able to set gmail as your default email service!
Ditch O/E and follow Earnest's instructions.... An excellent, user friendly program... good luck
thanks for all your help ... wouldnt you know as soon as i ask for help i lose internet but i will def be trying these suggestions
