    On a Vista computer, when I click to start Windows Live Mail, some email program (it's not identified, and I've never wanted to go althe way through the POP & SMTP to find out) setup starts, prompting me for email address, POP, etc. If I click cancel, Live Mail starts just fine. How can I get rid of the other email program starting?

    Under the general tab of the WLM "tools" section there is a tab, Defualt messaging program, located near the bottom. Choose "Make Default" next to "This is the default mail handler".

    More information than you have provided would be helpfull.
