Do you mean the email link at the top of the start menu? If so, you cannot make GMail an option there, as it is not a Microsoft product. However, you can make one yourself. Right click the desktop and go to New > Shortcut. In the wizard that comes up, type http://gmail.com. Click Next, type "GMail" then click finish. Now, click on the shortcut you have just made, drag it to the Start menu button, and drag it to the top of the start menu. You should now have a permanent shortcut to GMail on your start menu.

My son cannot get to his new email address


I am sorry but without more information I cant help you or him.
I need to know what kind of email address he has. Is it one of the cheapo free ones from google (gmail) yahoo or hotmail? Or is it a good old smtp email address that you would access from outlook express or windows email program?
windows xp and older used outlook express as a default email program. Vista and newer have a windows mail program somewhat inferior to the old outlook express.

Gmail, yahoo, and hotmail are all browser based and as long as you know your signin and password you can access it from any computer.

Outlook express...hotmail My friend stopped receiving e-mails sept 1 2009. when he opens up an e-mail received before sept 1, he gets the following error message... access to the account was denied, verify...


First make sure the Internet is working.
If it is then try to login with the same username and password on www.hotmail.com if you can log in then it's a problem with outlook express if you cant then that is the problem.
To make sure outlook express is correct click on Tools, Accounts then click on Mail tab and then click on your email address and select properties make sure the username and password are correct or retype them.

Email sound alert


That would be an option in your Email program. I am not familiar with Mac Setting but in Windows if you are using Outlook or Outlook Express there is a setting under Preferences in the drop down menu that allows you to have the computer play a sound when mail is received. If you are using a Web Based email service I am not sure you can do this. I know hotmail does not offer that option and I don't believe Yahoo does. The problem you will have if you are using Outlook or Outlook express is it only works if you are on a network. If your are using them through an ISP to access your email they only check to see if you have mail when you click the Send/Receive button. You can set Outlook to do this automatically based on time but that may degrade system performance.

I cant receive my emails


You can't receive emails? You need to give more information. Are you using a Web mail (i.e. Yahoo mail, Gmail) or are you using an e-mail client (i.e. Outlook 2003/2007; Outlook Express)?

Email clients uses two types of account, POP3 and IMAP.

If you are using an e-mail client like Outlook 2003, you need to change the incoming mail server. Please follow the steps below:

For Outlook 2003/2007:

1. Open your Outlook and then click on Tools.
2. Go to Accounts or Email Accounts.
3. Go to Mail tab and you will see the account that you have created (like pop.gmail.com or imap.gmail.com)
4. Double-click on pop or imap account and then go to Advanced tab.
5. You will see the Incoming Mail server.

By default, the incoming mail server is set to 110, you may change it to 995 and then select SSL. Then close and reopen your Outlook and click the Send/Receive button.

Now, if you're just using a Web e-mail like Gmail or Yahoo mail, you need to check your storage. There's a possibility that you reached the quota storage of your email that's why you are not receiving emails. You need to contact your email provider for this problem.

If you have a router on your network, you need to check the router settings and perform a Port Forwarding. You have to open the port 110 or 995 so that you could receive e-mails.

These are the things that you need to check and consider.

Have a great day!

My computer has stopped downloading E mail to Outlook, it is on Hot Mail but apparantly the outlook Connector has stopped. Have been getting messages to upgrade for several months but the URL gigen only...


Hotmail not too long ago stopped their POP3 service for programs like Outlook and Outlook Express. I have advised my clients who use Hotmail to migrate to a POP3 free service such as Gmail, which can be easily configured for Outlook Express, Outlook, Blackberry, etc.

The upside is that you will be able to view e-mail in Outlook again. The downside is that there is no way to migrate the Hotmail e-mail into Gmail, other than forwarding each message to your new Gmail account. Additionally, you will need to notify all your contacts of your new address.

Hope this helped :)

I use Outlook Express for Emailing, i would like to change my present email address please can you help me to do this? Regards Clive.


Outlook Express is just a software which can send and recieve emails from any email account configured on it(Outlook Express). regardless of yahoo, gmail, comcast.net ,aol.com etc.

So if you want to change your email address and want to use it on outlook express, you need to first create an email account by going to the website on which you want to create an email address.

Once you have created the email address we can look for the POP/SMTP server settings of that particular email account on the internet .
Once we have those(POP/SMTP) addresses we can configure Outlook Express to send and recieve emails for your new email account.
