I am using Google mail for all my emails, but if i am on a web site and i click a link within the web site to send someone an email it always opens outlook express, how can i go about setting this so whenever i click on links it will open Google mail.

Try clicking on Tools > Internet Options > Programs tab and select desired E-mail program

Tried your suggestion but it does not give Google mail as an option, it only gives Outlook express and windows live mail.
Any more suggestions

I use Google mail and had the same issue as you,I got round this by using Thunderbird and importing my Google mail to it.
You can then select Thunderbird from Tools>internet options > programmes.

There may a simpler way but I don't know it.

I find Thunderbird to be a much better option than Google (a personal preference I know)

Thanks. Any more suggestions on my original posting.

You can set Outlook Express to receive/send your Google Mail rather than having to sign into Google every time.

Having set up Google in OE (POP and SMTP) you can send and receive from there as a Google address click here
