I currently use Windows Live Mail and my daughter uses incredimail. We have an XP desktop with separte logins. Whenever I recieve an e-mail which has been forwarded, and I opn the attachemnt in live mail, the mail opens up incredimail. I have Live mail as my default programme but can't stop this happening. Any suggestions welcome
Incredimail is always going to be an issue. There is junk hidden within the software. As you can tell from ur own experience its trying to make you use it instead of ur usual email client. Incredimail is not serious software. Anybody that sends me an email using Incredimail i block them.
I guess u can tell i don't like Incredimail, but with good reason. I get paid good money to clean the mess it leaves behind.
First open Internet Explorer - go to Tools menu - Internet Options - Programs tab. Make sure that Windows Live Mail is selected as the eMail program - click Apply and OK.
Then go to Start and Select Program Access and Defaults. Expand the Custom heading - and click beside Use my current email program. On the right-hand side of WLM make sure there is a tick in the box - Enable access to this program but not in any of the other email programs that might be displayed. Click OK.
Many thanks for the advice. Tried checking both use my current e-mail programme and also setting WLM as the default. Only other option is outlook express which is un-checked. Incredimail still opens up when I open a forwarded e-mail
