Getting rid of Google

Post by sejintenej » Mon Jun 25, 2007 4:45 pm

Looking at one of DNTS's posts (viewtopic.php?t=1933&start=555) I happened to click on the "mail to ..." link.

What a load of uselessness; instead of getting an email form I get a G-Mail website and no possibility of contacting DBTS. How do I get rid of G-Mail???

BTW - I was only testing what would happen because I had the same problem last night when I was testing the links in my own website.
‘So, still happy you voted for my namesake who took away your health insurance, raised your taxes and should turn out to be a mental patient?’

This works for me, running MS Windows XP:
- click the "start" button
- On the right-hand side select "Set program access and defaults"
- Select "custom" and click on the little arrows on the right
- Select the required email program from the list

Hi, Mary

Although I also use XP Professional I don't have the "Set Program access.......". However I did check my defaults and that shows the default email program to be Outlook Express.

(I actually use the mailers provided by my online mail suppliers (Yahoo etc)
