Can I set Yahoo as my default server for emails


A default email account is the account that your computer will open when you click on an "Email Us" or "Contact Us" link when you are on the Internet. Your computer is pre-programmed to open the Outlook or Windows Mail email servers when you click one of these links. If you prefer to send emails with your Yahoo! Mail account instead, change the default settings.

Click the "Start" menu and select "Control Panel." Select "Internet Options" from the "Control Panel" window that opens. Click the "Programs" tab. Click the drop-down menu next to "E-mail." Select "Yahoo! Mail." Click "OK." Yahoo! Mail is now your default mail application. Hope this helps.

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.

I am on a lap top so how do i get through on a lap top


any time you are on anypage and it has a link to email them OR somebody, internet explorer (IE), will open your default mail program and ask you to fill out the email message BUT, you have not setup THAT email program (in XP it is most likely Outlook express, in Vista it is Windowsmail). SO if it is not set up right with all the info that your (ISP, (insternet service provider), like incoming mail server and the outgoing mail server, and the user name and pasword), the program will have no idea how to send that new email message that you triggered when clicking on the craigs list link). to find out which program is by default is trying to open up, while you are in IE, ( if that is in windows XP), click tools/internet options/prgrams and you will see it in front of email program., if you have VISTA, then click --> tools/internet options/prgrams/set programs/set default programs/then click on Windows mail and set it up as your Default prgram for email sending and receiving. ) but you need to make sure you get all the info from you ISP first, it a matter of fact they might be able to help set it up for you (depends on your ISP of course).
good luck

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).
