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.

How to connect yahoo mail using windows mail in Windows 7


You cannot configure Yahoo account with Windows live mail.
And the reason you are getting the error because you have Micosoft outlook in the pc and that email client (MS outlook) is not configured with your yahoo mail and it is not the default email client in your PC. Windows live mail is the default email client in your PC and you cannot configure Yahoo account in windows live mail.

When I go to a website and have a Point of contact email there , I try to write them and all I get is this" could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed"


Hi, Sorry for the Late Reply. Mails have gone in to the Spam Folder.
HandyTEchT has already posted the solution. That is the way to do it. Some additions: What happens when you click on the link is the Website will Invoke the Default Mail Client in your Machine. I think you have already installed one. You have to
  • Either do Configure the Software (Mail Client - But I don't think its available free for Yahoo to allow Send via a Mail Client. They have a Paid version for such Access).
  • Or You can Configure the Browser to use the "Default Mail Client". That is the easiest way. If you want to use Yahoo mail, here is how to do that (then it will automatically Redirect to the Default Mail Client - Yahoo Mail this time):
  1. This is for IE7 and Upwards.
  • Click on "Tools" menu and go to "Internet Options"
  • Go to "Programs Tab"
  • Drop Down the box for the Setting "E-mail:"
  • Select "Yahoo Mail"
  • Thats all what you have to do! "Click on "OK" button.
  • Note: If you don't have that in the List, Please download and Install the "Yahoo Toolbar"
  • It will ask you for some settings prior to the Installation (Some check boxes).
  • The last option has to be selected which is "Install the Yahoo! Mail Plug-in and make Yahoo! Mail my default Mail provider".
  • Restart the Browser
  • Thats all!
2. If you use Firefox:
  • Go to "Tools" and then Select "Options"
  • Go to "Applications" Tab.
  • Scroll until you find "mailto"
  • Drop the Box down and Select, "Yahoo Mail".
  • Thats all! Click on "OK".

This will solve your problem. Do not forget to "Rate" the Answer with a Comment (Testimonial)

Every time i access my yahoo mail the firefox.exe will pop up and there are 3 boxes that you need to click.....debug...sending error report....and ..don't send.what can i do.please help me.


In Firefox 3, by default, when user click on an email address or a URL link location that starts with mailto: protocol, the default email client, such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows Mail will be opened to allow user to compose and send email to the specific recipient?s mail address. If you prefer to use web based Yahoo! Mail as your default email client, and want to let Yahoo! Mail handles all mailto: protocol, so that the automatic e-mail message composing and email sending will be done via Yahoo! webmail interface, Firefox 3 provides a very easy way to associate the mailto: link with Yahoo! mail web-based interface, in fact, it?s a built-in integration. Go to Tools -> Options. Click on Applications tab icon. Locate and click to highlight mailto Content Type, and at the corresponding drop down box of Action, select Use Yahoo! Mail. Click OK. After change, whenever a mailto: link is clicked, the email address will be sent to Yahoo! Mail account Compose web interface, with recipient automatically set at the clicked e-mail address. Of course, user has to enter user name and password credentials first if he or she hasn?t already logged in. Note: It?s also possible to set Gmail as the default mailto: handler at Firefox 3 best of luck Mel

HOW DO YOU MAKE YAHOO EMAIL THE DEFAULT IN TOOLS INTERNET OPTIONS?


To make the Yahoo! as default E-Mail client:

1. First download and install the Yahoo Toolbar in the Computer.

2. Then, click on Start and select the option "Control Panel".

3. In the Control Panel, select the option “Internet Options”. This opens the “Internet Properties” window.

4. Click the “Programs” tab along the top.

5. Click the “E-mail” pull-down menu, and select Yahoo! Mail.

6. Then click on Apply and then OK.

NOTE: Yahoo! Toolbar v.7.2 and above for Internet Explorer (not Firefox) is the download that adds Yahoo! Mail to your Computer's list of email programs to choose from. But after you've chosen Yahoo! Mail as your Computer's default email application, Yahoo! Mail will open when you click an email link in any browser.


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).
