I Need to change my Default Mail Editor

Hi,
I use Mozilla to browse the web and I'm trying to make Gmail the default email editor when I hit "contact us" on various websites. Right now, my computer opens up MS Outlook & I never use that email account, so I want to change it to my Gmail email address.
I wonder if you can tell me how to do this & if it is the same for Internet Explorer uses, too. I am using Firefox 2.0.0.17 and the operating system is Windows Vista 2006.
Thanks for your help!

You need to install a new account on your outlook or windows mail, turn it to default account, make outlook your default mail client and voila. everytime a program needs to initiate an e-mail message it will use microsoft outlook which is using g-mail as the default address

How do i make gmail my email editor i have mso on my computer


Hi, Your operating system is tied to MS Windows 2003 and also with the MS Office Suite of 2003 that's why the default is MS Outlook 2003. Gmail is internet based and not restricted to your operating system. You can also access MS Outlook on the internet (Microsoft Office Web Access - MOWA) You will have to operate the two seperately as both have the features you will need.
THanks & best Wishes

The issue or problem is caused by system drive letter has change or a software has changed the default security provider without knowledge of users.

To resolve the issue, change the system drive letter to revert it back to original value, or match the new drive letter to the security provider. If the default security provider has been changed, reset the default security provider in Windows XP by deleting the relevant keys in the registry.

Reset the Default Security Provider in Windows XP
Start the computer. Press the F8 key during startup to start the computer in Safe mode.
Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
Delete the following registry keys in the Windows registry:HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers
Quit Registry Editor.
Restart the computer.

Match the Default Security Provider to New Drive Letter
Run Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
Navigate to the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Defaults\Provider
You will see a few Provider key beneath the branch. In each Provider key, edit the Image Path value to match the new drive letter.
Exit Registry Editor.
Restart computer.

Reset the Drive Letter of the System Drive

Use Registry Editor to change the drive letter of the system drive back to its original value. Edit the following registry key to change the value of the system drive:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

where \DosDevices\C: and other values presents the drive letters.

After Chrome uninstall Web page icons gone


I fully agree and sympathize with you.

I faced a similar problem and here is the solution for it.

First uninstall Google Chrome (From what you have written; you have already uninstalled it).

Go to "Set Default Programs" (Control Panel>Default Programs>Set Default Programs)

Select Internet Explorer and click Set this program as default

Select Microsoft Office Outlook and click Set this program as default

Run Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and browse to location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Ext and change the value data of all DWORD entries from 1 to 0.

Launch Internet Explorer first; launch your Mail client (hopefully Microsoft Officer Outlook).

Check if all is well and you are now able to open links from within your Mail client.

If all is well now, you may change your Default Program settings to Firefox.

P.S. Just remember to say thanks :) and you can always change the Firefox icons, you do know how?

Default yahoo email


If you use Yahoo! Mail for all your email needs, some of the amenities of Windows seem to elude you. A click on an email link in your browser brings up Outlook Express or another desktop email program, not a new message in Yahoo! Mail. Trying to send a file directly from Word, OpenOffice.org or another office application yields the same, unsatisfactory result.

Fortunately, the state of dissatisfaction need not be permanent. It will be overcome by making Yahoo! Mail act as your default email program in Windows, which, if you use Windows 95 or later is an easy thing to do.
Make Yahoo! Mail Your Default Windows Email Program

To set up Yahoo! Mail as your default email client in Windows:

* Download and install Yahoo! Messenger.
* Select Tools | Internet Options... from the menu in Internet Explorer.
* Go to the Programs tab.
* Make sure Yahoo! Mail is selected under E-mail.
* Click OK.

Yahoo! as Default Email: Does Not Work under Windows Vista

Unfortunately, Yahoo! Mail as your default email program may be hard-wired to use Internet Explorer instead of your default browser, and it does not work in Windows Vista.
Make Yahoo! Mail the Default Email Composer in Mozilla Firefox

In Mozilla Firefox, you can turn to the Mailto 2 Webmail script for Greasemonkey to have Yahoo! Mail handle email links (even under Windows Vista).

Sending emails using GMail on the iPhone


To fix the responding issue, you need to tell your iphone which account is the default account for sending your emails.

touch settings, then mail, and at the bottom of that page in the sending section it asks which account is your default.

The iphone will always use this accoutn to send emails if you start an email outside of the mail program, like by clicking an email in your contacts list or on a webpage.

Now if your in another POP account in the mail program and you click compose message it should be sent from that account.

Hope this helps :)
