How to make Gmail's email address 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 lead me through the steps of 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!

Download and install the free Gmail notifier. In Windows, right-click the Notifier icon in your system tray, and select 'Options.' Then check the box next to 'Use Gmail for internet mailto: links' and click 'OK.'

Why do my emails to others show windows live mail not my personal email address?


Really need more info than what you gave.
Your emails are sending through the Live mail server. Your personal email? is that from your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? Check the setting or options on your email client (program) it should have a reply to field you could set that as your personal email address. It is also possibly where the setting is that is sending through the live mail server.
You might need to set your ISP as the default. For example I use Thunderbird. It checks my ISP email and 3 Gmail addresses but when I send by default I send through one of my Gmail addresses but I can use a drop down box to select a different send server if I want to appear as coming from a different address.

Google started as a search engine and since has added many applications.
All these applications are available to you once you set up your Google account.
Setting up an account is easy. Point your web browser to the main Google web page.
The main Google page is the starting point for searches and other applications and features.
You can sign up for an account, manage your Gmail or start a Google group from here.
Find "Sign In" at the top right-hand corner.
This is a link and will lead you to where you can sign into an account or create one.
Fill out the required form.
Google ask you for a current email address, password, word verification and location.
They also have the terms of service. You must read and agree to these before going on.
Verify your email address.
Once you have submitted the completed form, Google will generate an email to your email address.
It will have a web address that you must visit to verify that you received the email.
Log in to your new Google Account.
Use the email address and password that you selected during sign-up.
You now have access to all the Google features.
Explore your new Google account features, including email, groups and the personalized homepages.

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

How to format e-mail and delete tables in Outlook


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Use the HTML mail sending format if you want to format tables correctly in Excel:


  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Send tab.
  2. Click HTML for the Mail sending format, and then click OK.

Creating Email templates(if this is what you mean by format email)—

Disable Word (set as your email editor) from the Outlook Options by choosing Tools \ Options from the menu. Choose the Mail Format tab, and make sure to uncheck the boxes to use Word. We are disabling word so that our default mail editor is not word.
Now, to create a template open a new mail message, choose the person(s) to send it to, a subject line, and a message body. Now you should be able to choose File \ Save As from the menu. Choose Outlook Template (.oft) as the file type, and pick a folder and file name to save the template.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I am very grateful for the Mozilla Spell check add-on (British) but there is one word which it does not correct when typed out incorrectly - expelined or explanied (instead of explained), there is another...


persdict.dat [a text file that opens in notepad] that's located in the profile folder of your Firefox installation.
For Windows Vista - %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxx.default
For Windows XP - C:\documents and settings\<username>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxx.default\persdict.dat holds the personal dictionary entries used by the spell checker that you added manually through web forms and input fields. Shut down Firefox and open the persdict.dat file using Notepad or any text editor.

If u still having doubts please follow this link

Cannot open links in outlook express does not open IE if i click on any links in emails


First go to "programs and features" uninstall Google Chrome.

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.

Mozilla Thunderbird setup


    Google Gmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): smtp.gmail.com
    The Gmail SMTP server requires authentication (use the same settings as for the incoming mail server)
    The Google Gmail SMTP Server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) on port 465.
    GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.
      Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 995)Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
