Incredimail + Windows mail Problem

  birdface 09:21 14 Aug 2009

I always use Incredimail but recently any e-mails with attachments are getting opened in Windows Mail.
I have no idea as to why this should be happening but would like Incredimail to go back to opening any attached e-mails that I receive as it it is the default e-mail provider.
Never made that very clear.Incredimail still opens the mail but when I click on the attachment it goes into windows mail which then opens with the attachment details.
Anyone having a similar problem.
I do use Windows messenger occasionally so not sure if the problem lies with that or not.

Sorry got to go out.I did click on to Windows messenger and am getting directed to windows mail instead of my usual e-mail address.

I haven't had any problems but in 'Incredimail' Cick on...

Bottom of menu 'Options'
'Message' Tab
'Advanced Settings' Button bottom right
This box contains everything 'attachment'.
I have everything ticked except for the top one.
Click 'OK' come out and try clicking an attachment now?

I've done some digging since the above post. The difinative answer is...

In Incredimail...
'Advanced' Tab
Under the heading 'General'
Tick the box next to...
'Associate '.eml' files with IncrediMailXe'
Click 'OK'

Many thanks.Spot on with the second fix.I had never used windows Mail so I was baffled why it kept appearing.
Keep up the good work it was appreciated.
