Your operating system is set to use Outlook as the default email application. Since you need to stay in your Internet browser to use Yahoo mail, right-click the support link, and one of the options that should show up is to copy the email address. Choose that, start a new message in your email, click on the To: line, and touch Control-V to paste the address you copied.

I cannot send email because it is placed in outlook stating the server does not permit relaying


There's a lot you don't say in your message, but if your email is with a web-based email provider, like gmail, yahoo, aol, etc. You must use that account through a web browser and not with Outlook.

I most often see this when someone clicks on an email link on a contact-us web page that is connecting directly to an email address. The computer launches Outlook, but has no Outlook account.

Here's what to do, if that is what you are running into:
  1. right-click on the link in the web-page and choose copy email address.
  2. Next, bring up your web-mail account in a web browser and compose a new message.
  3. In the TO box, right click and choose Paste to paste in the copied email address.
  4. Proceed the same as you normally do to send an email message to that address.

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.

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
