    Email links with webmail (IE7)

    On a webpage, when I click on a link to send an email, Outlook Express automatically opens. I use webmail. Is there a way to configure the mailto function to open my webmail page instead? THANKS in advance!

    You might try to open Control Panel>AddRemove Programs>Set Program access and Defaults>Custom.
    Select your email program to be the default. OK out.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks for your reply. The only choices seem to be Outlook Express or "use my current email program" I might be missing something, but I'm not using an email program, I use webmail.

    I don't believe this function will work unless you use an installed email program like Outlook Express, Firefox, Outlook, etc.

    In many cases, the webmail provider offers a toolbar or other add-in that can redirect mailto: links in web pages.

    Google Gmail Notifier: http://toolbar.google.com/gmail-help...r_windows.html
    Google Toolbar, version 5 beta: http://toolbar.google.com/T4/index.html

    Not sure for Yahoo! Saw one post that says installing Yahoo! messenger will do this.

    Just what we all need.... more toolbars !!! <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> I wish they would just add that function to their email programs. It's hard enough to see my desktop as it is. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>
