Bad default mail client ? Help

  Dmiles 17:06 15 Jan 2008

I'm into a site and invited to click on an email address.
A Windows Internet Explorer box comes up with the words

"Cannot........default mail client is not properly set up"

Please help.

Clicking on an email address hyperlink usually launches your mail program. Can you not hover over the link and make a note of the email address and type it into your mail program manually?

Use your own client with the given email address,maybe its bringing up Outlook Express,which is no good to you if you dont use it.

Again thanks to all.. Derek
