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.

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)
